Another disappointing Big Ten team comes in as a middle of the pack team as the Iowa Hawkeyes get set to take on Temple in the Round of 64.
This will mark the 3rd straight time Iowa has appeared in the tournament, a place where they haven’t made any kind of deep runs.
The Owls get back into the tournament after missing out on the fun for two straight seasons as they did exactly what the committee looks for.
Temple started off 8-7, but then took off at a rapid pace, winning 13 of their last 17 games. Temple has been a tourney team for 6 of the past 10 seasons, but again, that includes the 2 year absence.
The Owls pride themselves on the defensive end, but they lost all that in the AAC tourney where they allowed UConn to score 77 points in a 15 point loss. The Owls have allowed an average of 67.4 points per game as they love to use a lot of pressure and force turnovers with a lot of double teams.
Temple also does a solid job in closing out on shooters. They have held the opposition to 41.7% shooting from the field and 31.4 percent from behind the arc.
The Hawkeyes competed for a regular season Big Ten title all season long and after eventually falling short, they at least had a promising road in the Big Ten tourney. However, that came to a crashing halt when they took the on Illinois Fighting Illini.
The Hawkeyes couldn’t overcome their poor defensive effort and were bounced early from the tourney, really pushing them back in the committee’s eyes.
Iowa did however register 20 wins on the season, which marked the 4th straight time they’ve done that.
The Hawkeyes do have success against the AAC in their program’s history too. Iowa has gone 17-10 against AAC teams and has a 2-0 record in the school’s history under their belt against Temple.
