How Iowa State Wins

Iowa State need to do what they do best and score the ball for the best chance at winning the game. They rank 6th in the country in scoring as they average 83.2 points per game. The Cyclones need to also keep rebounding the ball at a high rate. They average 39.2 rebounds per game and that ranks 16th in the country. The final thing they need to do is play better defense. Their opponents are scoring an average of 73.2 points per game and that ranks 253rd in the country.

 

How Baylor Wins

Baylor will win this game if they find a way to score more points. They rank 90th in the country in scoring as they average 73.3 points per game. The Bears will also need to keep rebounding the ball the way they do. They average 39 rebounds per game and that ranks 17th in the country. The final thing they need to do is limit the amount of turnovers the commit. They average 12.3 turnover per game and that ranks 161st in the country.

 

My Prediction

Iowa State wants to go out and make this a high scoring game. While Baylor wants to make this a lower scoring game. Whichever team can play to their style and win the rebound battle will have the best chance in winning the game.

I think that this game is high scoring like Iowa State wants. I think that the Cyclones win the rebound battle. I think that Baylor will play good and stay in the game but I think Iowa State pulls away late because Baylor doesn’t have the offensive weapons to stay in the game.

Final Score

Iowa State: 85
Baylor: 76
