Ohio State and Iowa take to the court Sunday afternoon with giant Big 10 implications on the line.
Iowa sits 1.5 back of first place Maryland, while the Buckeyes have fallen to 7th at 10-6 in conference play. This game holds major significance for the Buckeyes in terms of the bubble watch. Right now, this team is for sure on the bubble and can help their cause with a giant resume building win.
The Hawkeyes have dropped back to back games to slip in the standings as they may have also lost their chance at grabbing a 1 seed in the tournament.
Iowa has added 2 bad losses to their resume with an away loss at lowly Penn State then saw Wisconsin come into their house and knock them off by 8. They’ve now dropped 3 of 4 and are going cold at the wrong time.
The Hawkeyes will look to find the same shooting touch that they had the last time these two teams met. Iowa shot 52% from the field as this team has a compliment of solid jump shooters.
They’ve lost that touch in their previous 2 games, shooting just 32% against Wisconsin and just 41% against Penn State.
Iowa has had their fair share of troubles on the road this season, going just 5-4 SU.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes ran off 4 straight wins before falling to Michigan State last time out, but all 4 wins came against mediocre teams in the conference.
With two games left against number 8 Iowa and number 6 Michigan State, the Buckeyes could use an upset to add to their rather weak resume. Their biggest wins this season have come against Kentucky and Michigan, but that may not be enough for this team to crash the tournament.
Ohio State has just simply had troubles with ranked teams and that was the case against Michigan State at home last time out.
The Spartans outscored the Buckeyes 45-31 in the 2nd half as Ohio State shot just 39.6% from the field compared to the Spartans 54.4%.
A loss here could put Ohio State behind Purdue, which again, doesn’t look good for them in the eyes of the committee finishing in the bottom tier of the conference.
Ohio State has gone 10-6-1 ATS this season at home, which also does include a few neutral site games.

Free Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Ohio State Buckeyes CBB Prediction:
You can’t call it a must win, but Ohio State is in trouble if they don’t steal one here.
Their resume is rather weak and they will likely fall in Michigan State in the season finale, which will really force them to make a deep run in the conference tourney.
However, Iowa is just too strong and is in a position where they need to find their touch and pick the steam back up.
