It’s a big week for Iowa men’s basketball. Three games while coming off back-to-back losses. The Hawkeyes started the week Tuesday night with an 84-78 win over Michigan State, but it wasn’t exactly the most satisfying victory. The bench played a big role complementing Luka Garza as Iowa rallied from an 11-point first-half deficit.
On this edition of the On Iowa Podcast, The Gazette’s Mike Hlas and Nathan Ford break down Tuesday’s game and discuss if what we saw was a blip, or the latest evidence that the team might not live up to preseason expectations.
Plus, a preview of Thursday’s top-10 matchup between No. 8 Iowa and No. 7 Ohio State and a quick look at Sunday’s game at Indiana. Will it be a sweep, split or 0-fer?
Finally, some appreciation for Garza, who surpassed the 2,000-career point milestone in Tuesday’s win. As his college career winds down, don’t take him for granted.
