Northern Iowa Panthers
Northern Iowa has played really well of late. Over the last ten games, they have won nine of those games including the conference championship.
Northern Iowa’s big win which propelled to this position was knocking off the Wichita State Shockers in overtime in the semi-finals of the Mountain Valley Conference.
Northern Iowa plays at a slow pace and they make the opposition work for every shot. Northern Iowa is 11th in the nation in scoring defense and while they don’t score a ton on the offensive end, they are decent enough hitting 45% of field goal attempts.
Texas has a quality team all-around, but it’s important if Cameron Ridley plays. The big man is dealing with a foot injury and is expected to play versus Northern Iowa.
If Ridley doesn’t play, Texas should still be able to get by Northern Iowa, but it will be a tougher task. Ridley is force in the paint that really gives the Longhorns a massive advantage.
Whether or not Ridley plays will effect the Longhorns on the offensive end of the court, but defensively they will still be rock solid. The Longhorns allow only 68 points per and Northern Iowa isn’t exactly a prolific offense.
