Iowa has yet to be challenged in its three non-conference games, but it should in this tournament. Louisiana, formerly known as Louisiana-Lafayette, plays an up-tempo style of basketball like the Hawkeyes so their game should be a shootout.
Both teams average more than 90 points a game, and Louisiana puts up 94.5. But the Ragin’ Cajuns also give up 76.0 points a game, while Iowa allows 64.7.
The Hawkeyes are led by sophomore point guard Jordan Bohannon (9.7 points, 6.3 assists), sophomore forward Tyler Cook (12.3 points, 6.3 rebounds), sophomore guard Isaiah Moss (13.7 points) and freshman center Luka Garza (13.3 points, 9.0 rebounds).
