    Big question...how will the Buckeyes come out after their first loss? I'm guessing Mr Craft has 'em ready to go...

    These guys like to get up and down, fast.

    Will be interesting to see an up-tempo matchup.

    Lots of "experts" picking Iowa for the upset. I still have that bad taste in my mouth from that loss at MSU we need to get this one.

    I think that Ohio State's major opportunity is to frustrate them by dictating the pace of the game. As OHSportsFan says, they are among the fastest uptempo programs. They are a very balanced team ranked in the top 20 on offense and defense by Pomeroy; they like to run and gun. The Buckeye backcourt is a nightmare scenario for them, if Ohio State takes control early. On the other hand, if Iowa dictates the pace, Ohio State may not be strong enough on offense to keep up with them. Iowa held below 70, Buckeyes by 6.

    Plus, they gun three's on the break a ton. I think Ohio State's transition defense is important today, as it always is.

    Just wish the three-point shooting could get shored up or at least improve (show some consistency).

    As we near the game, I really have no clue how to call it- would be pleasantly surprised if the Bucks frustrate the Hawkeyes and just run them out of their own game, but I honestly think it's possible.

    The safe bet for me, though, is this will be a close one, in the 70s.

    Would like to see Amir Williams have a real good game today. That would be a pleasant surprise.

    Lol, layup drill for Iowa. This D still gives up WAY too many easy ones.

    Lenzelle doin' his thing though, feeling the flow...

    Sloppy play. No interior defense.

    They love to get out and score. That doesn't surprise me.

    It's the lack of resistance in the paint that is bothersome.
