Iowa State will try to maintain their solid start to the 2022-23 season when they take on Iowa in a rivalry encounter on Thursday night. The Cyclones now have won seven of their first eight outings, including a 71-60 victory over St. John’s on Sunday. Meanwhile, Iowa is looking to come back from a 74-62 defeat to Duke on Tuesday.
The Cyclones rolled to a trio of dominating victories over IUPUI, North Carolina A&T and Milwaukee to kick off the season. Iowa State then added a pair of high-level victories over Villanova and North Carolina at the Phil Knight Invitational.
That said, they were unable to close the deal in the title game of that event, falling down to UConn in a 71-53 final. Iowa State has been able to get back their winning ways since then, taking down North Dakota and St. John’s by double digits.
Iowa State is led by senior guard Jaren Holmes, who is scoring 14.8 points and 3.4 assists on average. Meanwhile, guard Caleb Grill is scoring 10.5 points and grabbing 4.1 rebounds per game, while center Osun Osunniyi is in double figures too, with 10 points of his own.
Now looking at the other side, Iowa will be trying to add a marquee non-conference win to its record on Thursday night. The Hawkeyes managed to go 5-0 in their first five games of the campaign, taking down Seton Hall and Clemson. Now they have lost two of their three matches since then, losing to TCU and Duke.
Their single win during that three-game stretch was against Georgia Tech in a dominating 81-65 victory. They were behind during virtually the entire game against Duke at the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden last Tuesday. Iowa was heading into the game averaging 86.4 PPG, but Duke held their opponents to 65 points for the eighth time.
