Stats and Other Thoughts

  • Iowa is looking to sweep Iowa State in the “Big 3″ (Wrestling, Football, Basketball) again.  The Hawkeyes beat the Cyclones 35-3 on the gridiron and 18-16 on the mat.
  • Iowa’s preparation for Iowa State was limited, as the 2009 Super Mega Ultra Blizzard kept the team in Cedar Falls longer than anticipated following the UNI game.
  • Iowa has won 8 of the last 13 games vs. Iowa State.
  • 41-8… that is the cumulative record of the five teams Iowa has lost to so far this year.
  • Individual Big Ten rankings: Jarryd Cole is 4th in FG% at 61.2  and 14th in rebounding at 6 per game.  CullyPayne  averages 4 assists per game, which is 8th.  Matt Gatens ranks 5th in FT% at 88.5% and 4th in minutes per game. Anthony Tucker make 2.56 3-pointers per game ranking him 2nd and his 11.8 points per game is 21st.
