Iowa Hawkeyes – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2016

South No. 7 Iowa Hawkeyes (Overall: 21-10, Conf: 12-6)

Team Strengths

Iowa has the makings of a national championship contender. They swept the likes of Purdue and even Michigan State to earn considerations as possible national title favorites. But the Hawkeyes had a horrible 2-6 stretch entering the Big Dance. Nevertheless, Iowa remains a very well-rounded team ranking 57th in points per game (78.1), 68th in rebounds per game (38.4), 32nd in assists per game (16) and 96th in points allowed per game (68.7).

Team Weaknesses


Defense seems to have failed Iowa. Gone was the solid defense that earned them considerations as national title contenders. They allowed 74.3 points per game during their horrid 2-6 rut towards the end of the season.
