The Hawkeyes are still after their first Big Ten win, and it won’t come easy on Sunday. The Maryland contest is the first of three straight road games for Iowa.
The Hawkeyes will need forward Tyler Cook to continue his strong play. Cook is averaging 24.5 points and 8.5 rebounds over the last two league games. Turnovers are a problem for the Hawkeyes, and they limited themselves to 11 against Ohio State on Thursday. Any chance at pulling off the upset will require Iowa to hold onto the basketball.
Maryland enters without forwards Justin Jackson and Ivan Bender, who combined for 13.2 points and 11.0 rebounds. Their injuries leave the Terrapins thin in the frontcourt.
Guards Anthony Cowan and Kevin Huerter could pose big problems for a team that struggles with perimeter defense. The duo combines to score 30.4 points. Each is a threat from deep. Cowan hits 38.5 percent of his 3s while Huerter is shooting 45.7 percent from beyond the arc.
