The Fairleigh-Dickinson Knights travel to Carver-Hawkeye Arena to face the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Fairleigh-Dickinson stands at 3-8, which can be explained by the struggles at both ends of the floor. Both trends continued in a 77-55 defeat at Princeton that was competitive through 20 minutes. At the final horn, the Knights managed 37% from the field, while Princeton checked in at 44.8% hitting, 11-28 from long-range with FDU connecting on three bombs. Sydney Sanders Jr. poured in a game high 23 points on 7-14 from the field, but he didn't get much help from his supporting cast. Scooter Gillette and Mathias Seilund added eight points and combined for nine boards with production difficult to find elsewhere.

Iowa has been racking up the points with a high\-powered offense and the victories have followed with the Hawkeyes building a 9-1 record and their lone defeat coming to Villanova in overtime, which we mow know wasn't a bad loss. The offense continued to do their thing in an 83-66 rout of Drake with the Bulldogs held to under 40% from the floor, while the Hawkeyes hit at 45.5%. Drake connected on 12 long balls but the home team mustered six more shots and held a 22-8 edge at the charity stripe. Melsahn Basabe led the scoring with 15 points and eight boards with Roy-Devyn Marble and Peter Jok adding 14 points each and combining for 13 yanks while Jarrod Uthoff netted 13 points and hauled in nine rebounds.
No line released yet but you can bet it will be huge and my guess is it will be around 25+. I obviously don't know the number but Iowa will likely decide ,if this is a cover or not.
