Game Preview


The Ohio State Buckeyes are set to journey to Iowa on Friday evening to face off against the Hawkeyes in a pivotal game that holds both teams’ aspirations in the NCAA Tournament. Having suffered 3 consecutive defeats, the Buckeyes’ overall record stands at a mere 13-8, with a disappointing 2-7 record in the Big Ten. On the other hand, the Hawkeyes currently hold a 12-9 season record, having recently lost to Indiana on Tuesday night, and possess a 4-6 record in the Big Ten. The game is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm Eastern Time.


In the wake of a disappointing 87-75 defeat to Illinois on Tuesday night, the Ohio State Buckeyes have now suffered 3 consecutive losses in the Big Ten. Despite a valiant effort from Jamison Battle and Roddey Gayle Jr., who contributed 21 and 20 points respectively, the Buckeyes were unable to overcome their opponents. Ohio State struggled from beyond the arc, shooting under 30%, while Illinois capitalized on their shooting prowess converting over 40% from downtown.



The Iowa Hawkeyes suffered a setback in their Tournament aspirations last Tuesday, after a 74-68 defeat to Indiana on the road. Throughout the game, Iowa’s offense struggled and they found themselves trailing by 17 points in the first half. Despite this, the Hawkeyes managed to make a comeback and even held a 1 point lead with less than 2 minutes remaining. Tony Perkins played a crucial role in the team’s resurgence, contributing 17 of his 22 points in the second half. Although Iowa briefly held a 2 point advantage at 66-64, they were ultimately defeated by a 10-2 run from the Hoosiers, sealing their loss.


Due to the Buckeyes’ horrendous record on the road, we give the edge to Iowa who desperately need it to continue their aspirations moving forward.
