The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Iowa Hawkeyes are finally where their coaching staff wants the program to be in the Conference. Indiana is a predominate basketball institute with a rich tradition. The Hoosiers want to relive the day of Robert Montgomery Knight.

The Iowa Hawkeyes have won their last three basketball contests both straight-up and against the spread. Iowa defeated Illinois on the road 77-65 in their last game on February, 7th. Iowa is on top of the standings in the Conference with a one-game lead over second place Maryland. Head Coach Fran McCaffery’s team is also number-one in the country after Oklahoma loss to Kansas State on Saturday, the sixth of this month. That is according to CBS; other polls have the Hawkeyes a top five team in the land. Senior Forward Jarrod Uthoff leads the team in scoring with 18.4 ppg. Junior Guard and Iowa native Peter Jok is second in scoring with a little over fifteen points per contest. Seven-foot Center Adam Woodbury pull down a team-best 7.7 rebounds per game. Iowa has not experienced a number-one ranking for quite some time, and Thursday’s contest at IU will show what their maturity level is at.
The 2016 Indiana Hoosiers have won tow of their last three. Indiana got upset at Penn State in their last game. The team will be without sharpshooter James Blackmon 111 for the rest of the season. Blackmon is one of four Hoosiers scoring in double figures this season. The teams leading scorer is Senior Point Guard Kevin “Yogi” Farrell. The Indianapolis native is a four-year starter at the position. Farrell is also aware how experienced point guards have dominated in the NCAA Tournament recently. Head Coach Tom Crean knows Farrell is the key to the Hoosiers success. The absence of Blackmon, whose father starred at Indiana in the late 1980’s has forced other players to step up. Junior Troy Williams pulls down a team-best 6.3 rebounds per contest. The key to a Hoosier victory over the top-ranked team in the nation is to play efficiently at both ends of the court.
Iowa is 16-5 the last twenty-one meetings between the teams.
The Betting Odds Under The Total Are 7-3 Indiana last ten overall.
