The Hawkeyes take on the Antelopes as they look for their first real run in the NCAA tournament since 1999
The Iowa Hawkeyes will speak for the first time in 727 days in the NCAA tournament after their chance of a run was taken away last year when COVID-19 raised its ugly head * Now the Hawkeyes are with their tallest seed since Back in action in 1987 This group made the Elite 8, an achievement that has not yet been achieved
Iowa’s Grand Canyon with the 15th is in the way Seeds As we’ve noticed all week, the antelopes offer tremendous length for a low-major program. They start twin towers including 6’10 “Alessandro Lever and 7’0” Asbjorn Midtgaard who will try to be Luka National Player of the Year Attacking Garza Without the depth of the injured Jack Nunge, can the Hawkeyes find an answer to the size of the Grand Canyon?
Despite their size, the Lopes have had matchups to battle high profile opponents this season. The GCU lost their only two matchups with Power 6 opponents and only went 2-3 The Hawkeyes in games against non-Quadrant 4 opponents will only be your 2nd Q1 Game of the Year Will Iowa’s battle-hardened lineup be able to equalize the size of the Grand Canyon? Can the Hawkeyes keep the defense at the level we’ve seen in the past few weeks? Or will the antelopes be the second team this year and only the 10th team Team in NCAA tournament history (call Ohio state to enter the record books on day 1) to shoot a 2-seed in the first round?
