The Penn State Nittany Lions and Iowa Hawkeyes meet Thursday in the Big Ten Tournament.

Newbill is averaging 20.7 points and 3.2 assists while Brandon Taylor is averaging 9.3 points and 5.3 rebounds. Shep Garner is dishing 2.4 assists and Ross Travis is grabbing 6.3 rebounds. The Penn State Nittany Lions have four players averaging at least 8.8 points, and they’re shooting 69.6 percent from the line and 32.7 percent from deep.

The Iowa Hawkeyes look to build on their six-game winning streak. On the season, Iowa is averaging 69.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting and is allowing 61.7 points on 39.2 percent shooting. Aaron White is averaging 15.9 points and 7.4 rebounds while Jarrod Uthoff is averaging 12.2 points and 6.3 rebounds. Gabriel Olaseni is grabbing 4.8 rebounds and Mike Gesell is dishing 3.8 assists. The Iowa Hawkeyes have five players averaging at least 7.1 points, and they’re shooting 74.3 percent from the line and 33.6 percent from deep. Defensively, Iowa is allowing 32.2 percent shooting from deep and has given up 66 or less points in nine of its last 10 games.

Penn State is too much of a one-man team and is coming off a hard played game against Nebraska. I look for a rested Iowa team to win by double digits.
