Iowa-Chicago State preview
The intrigue here isn’t from the game itself. Iowa is likely to win, and win easily against Chicago State.
What’s worth watching is what the Hawkeyes do. The most obvious question is who will start on a team a rotation that could go 13 players deep. Coach Fran McCaffery said on Thursday forward Ahmad Wagner will start and that Isaiah Moss (ankle) will suit up. The most likely lineup is guard Jordan Bohannon, forward Tyler Cook and forward Luka Garza with Wagner and Moss.
Forward Nicholas Baer, the reigning Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year, is out with a broken pinky finger suffered in practice. He will miss three to four weeks. He is a jack-of-all-trades-type, capable of pitching in as a scorer, rebounder or defender. With him out, Iowa will get an extended look at newcomers Jack Nunge and Garza in the post. Each is known for their scoring ability and provide some height inside Iowa lacked last season.
The team’s two best players, Bohannon (10.9 points, 5.1 assists) and Cook (12.3 points, 5.3 rebounds), are looking to build on Big Ten All-Freshman selections last season. The rest of the rotation is in the air.
These types of gimme games, where Iowa is expected stroll to a victory, may not appear to hold much value, but they do for the players this season. Performances in November will help dictate who plays and how much as the team heads into conference play.
The entire roster returns virtually intact, but the Hawkeyes must replacing the scoring from All-Big Ten shooting guard Peter Jok. He averaged a team-high 19.9 points.
Defense is another focal point entering the season. The Hawkeyes ranked 123rd nationally in adjusted defense, according to KenPom.com and must improve that figure to make the NCAA Tournament this season.
The Chicago State game won’t give an answer on where this team sits defensively. It will be several games before definitive statements can be made, but an engaged Iowa on the defensive end would be a good sign in the opener.
