Game 17: Michigan at Iowa Preview

Don’t feel good about this one at all without Livers, where we really need him to shoot over the top of their zone.


i agree, not feeling well about this game at all

Yeah, Michigan is 1-5 in its last six trips to Carver-Hawkeye. Don’t see them walking out 2-5 in their last seven.

So over/under 29.5 points for Luka Garza tonight?

I would predict the over


I agree with Dylan on the hot-button topic of post defense — I expect more aggressive digging from a player not guarding the post, but no straight out double teams. I also expect more ball pressure on the perimeter to make post entries more difficult; I thought this was a weak point in some of the past games.

Simpson digging off of Toussaint makes a lot of sense to me, where possible.

I don’t love that Franz has been a somewhat natural option to double team quite a bit and he’ll probably be matched up with Wieskamp. Feels like potential disaster.


I’ll take the under, mostly because I’m hoping not to throw the remote through the TV screen tonight


Is tonight the night we see Cole get some run and go off? I’d be all for it.

Don’t hold your breath


Unless Juwan is secretly an anonymous message board poster, there’s nothing to suggest that. Crazier things have happened, but seems unlikely

My hope is that Johns goes beast mode on the boards and Iowa is limited to 2 off rebounds for the game …

My hope is that Michigan pitches a shutout and Iowa doesn’t score a basket the entire game.


You drive a hard bargain, but I’m on board.

I’m not greedy, I’d take even one of those to happen
