How Iowa Wins

Iowa will win this game if they keep scoring at a high pace. They average 83.6 points per game and that ranks 5th in the country. The Hawkeyes also need to take care of the ball. They commit an average of 11.5 turnovers per game and that ranks 90th in the country. The final thing they will need to do is keep rebounding the ball the way they do. They average 41.8 rebounds per game and that ranks 5th in the country.

 

How Michigan State Wins

Michigan State will win this game if they keep playing great defense. Their opponents only average 65.3 points per game and that ranks 50th in the country. The Spartans also need to rebound the ball better. They average 37.7 rebounds per game and that ranks 41st in the country. The final thing they need to do is find a way to score more points. They average 76.2 points per game and that ranks 40th in the country.

 

My Prediction

Iowa wants to go out a score a lot of points. While Michigan State want to make this a low scoring defensive 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 a lower scoring game like Michigan State want. I think that the Spartans also win the rebound battle. So I think with home court advantage the Spartans win the game.

Final Score

Michigan State: 74
Iowa: 68
