I had sort of spaced out that they beat Cincinnati in the tournament last spring until recently.

It was sort of weird. They just beat Tennessee after losing to Colgate- all four teams were in the same initial pod last March.

JoeT being the starting point will be great for him. His job is to defend, get the ball inside to Luka or over to JoeW and CJ for 3s. He won’t need to force any scoring so I think we will see him play more under control than when he’s playing with guys like Kriener, Pemsl and Evelyn on the floor with him.

Connor and CJ have been ok but I like the option of letting Joe T create if the shot clock runs low

I think Bohannon will be missed much more than the stats suggest. Toussant will be a fine contributor long-term but I'm not seeing the big difference-maker many are making him out to be. 5'10 guys who can't shoot are an easy scout for big ten teams.

Is Patrick anywhere near returning? Getting to the point where we could really use him.

This is a weird weekend to have a neutral site game in Chicago. Any other weekend and people might make the trip. Family and friends living in Chicago that are Iowa fans are all back in Iowa already.

The defense will improve and he can create shot opps for other players. It will also be nice to have someone who can beat someone off the dribble with the shot clock expiring

Nah, Bohannon was shooting 32% from 3, 21% from 2, couldn't push it in transition and couldn't move defensively. Providing floor spacing only goes so far. His production can easily be replaced. As others have mentioned expiring shot clock situations along with end of half/game situations should be much better with Toussaint. A few more turnovers and Bohannon's free throws at the end of games are really the only things that will be worse.

I just landed at ORD and my flight was moved back about an hour.... Wouldn't be too upset if it cancelled and I ended up watching the Hawks here...

This feels like an adjustment game for Iowa tonight with Joe T starting at the point.

I’m mainly predicting an Iowa loss because I’ve been fucking wrong about everything as of late. Hope that trend continues.

I don't think they could have played any dumber if they had tried.

Wow. A win is a win but pretty gross. Complete meltdown in the backcourt during the second half and make your fucking free throws.

Evelyn has had some nice plays for sure. But has was total shit running the offense. Not really his fault though as he shouldn’t be playing point guard

How the fuck did they win? Ah well, that's a hell of a job in the non-conference for them. In other news:

I assume a lot will be made of Toussaint's minutes, but I don't know what Fran should have done.

I'd like him to be able to play through his mistakes, but he seems like a guy that would press even harder to make up for his mistakes.
