This is a real treat of a game featuring two undefeated ranked teams.
If you like point guard play you don’t want to miss this one. Monte Morris (ISU) got a lot of All-American buzz preseason while Nigel Williams-Goss (Gonzaga) is showing us what all the fuss was about when he transferred.
It would be more fun if this game was at Hilton or in the Kennel but it should still reel us in.
Iowa State Cylones
The story coming into the season was mostly about who is not in Ames anymore and rightfully so given Georges Niang evolution to an elite college player.
Morris is one of the best PGs in America and this year he is the team’s leading scorer at 16ppg. He also leads in assists with 6pg.
ISU is 8th in the nation scoring he is getting a lot of help in that category from Naz Long, Matt Thomas and Deonte Burton. All experienced players.
Darrell Bowie is taking up the mantle of banger in the middle, leading the team in rebounds with more than 8 per game. Shocker, he is a transfer from NIU.
Burton is the x factor for ISU most nights. He can score but with that big body he can really punish opponents in a variety of ways.
This will be a tough matchup for the Cyclones who do not have a lot of size to counter Gonzaga. They are definitely going to have to in the backcourt.
The Zags are always good but there is a lot of buzz that this group could be even better than the one that went deep into the NCAAs last season.
This is a deep and balanced team with 5 players averaging between 11.6 and 12.2ppg. Williams-Goss is just a smidge off the lead but has really not shot it well. He leads in assists showing a steady hand.
The leading scorer has actually been Zach Collins, a 7 footer, who has a freshman has been really impressive. He knows that a good shot is (69% from the field) and can make free throws (76%)
The return of Przemek Karnowski means that Collins does not have to take a pounding down low and they can really play big thank to Jonathan Williams, a PF transfer from Mizzou who looks pretty good.

Free Iowa State Cyclones vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction:
I would expect that Gonzaga will be the favourite in this one. They are the higher ranked of the two teams and have looked good early.
Iowa State’s best win came in their last game against a solid Miami program. They were only favoured by three points.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Zags -2
This game should have good flow and be high scoring. The rebounding advantage and size inside should tip things for Gonzaga. I anticipate they will be minus 6 or 7.
