Michigan State was super solid to start the week in beating a ranked Maryland team at home. Beating another ranked team on the road would be even more impressive.
The Big Ten is loaded this season but Iowa still doesn’t get much pub. They will if they take this game.
Michigan State Spartans
It was not a surprise that the Spartans took care of Maryland. Though how they got there might have been.
The first thing of note is that Nick Ward scored zero points. He is the second leading scorer but was in foul trouble all game.
Even without him the Spartans had 5 players in double figures led by Cassius Winston with 14. Kyle Ahrens did play but he is questionable again for this one.
So is Josh Langford who averages 15ppg and makes 40% of his threes. Winning on the road without him will be a challenge.
Iowa is one of the highest scoring teams in the nation. They are also riding a give game winning streak after dropping their first three league games.
The Hawkeyes just scored 95 against Illinois with three players scoring 20 or more. They are really balanced too with five players scoring 10ppg or more.
Tyler Cook is a future NBA power forward. He leads the team in scoring and rebounding and will be tasked with guarding Ward. Ward might not be that aggressive after his zero performance.
Iowa can be deadly behind the arc with 5 regulars that shoot better than 35% from deep. That is how you bring down a top ranked team if you are not supposed to.

Iowa may be good but I think the Spartans will be small favourites on the road. The question is who sets the pace.
If Iowa can speed up Michigat State then we are definitely on upset alert.
