It still blows my mind how terrible teams are on the road in college basketball.

I think it has something to do with so many players leaving early. Easier to play well on the road if you have a team full of studs.

I get a pretty impressive hard-on every time Luka beats Maryland.

The defense played great, especially the team rebounding. Poor shooting and no second chances doomed the Terrapins.

I know it sounds like excuses but travel, different balls, wide varieties of arena design. It would be harder to play on the road than in high school or the NBA

Iowa is at #20 in KenPom after the game. Offense has understandably fallen to #6 but the Defense is now up to #80.

That is great to see the Nebrantska game didn't really hurt them at all, especially with the win tonight.

I really like what Fran is doing with Toussaint. He is pulling him when he is horrible like he was to start the game but is encouraging and getting him back in. The chase down block he had might have turned the game.

That block was indicative of a person who wants to find ANY way to contribute. I like that guy.

Bakari only had 3 pts, but the three ball he hit was huge. Terps we’re making a run and he shut the door.
He is just a little sloppy. He could be effective just tightening things up a little.

I still think the real danger is the minutes that Luka and Wieskamp are racking up.

They played 35 minutes and 39 minutes tonight. Played 36 minutes each against Nebrantska.

With as active and as much usage as both of them have, Fran might need to get creative to give them each a few minutes more of a break. It would help if at a minimum he starts using his timeouts instead of not using 4 of them like he did tonight.

I like how every one of his 3s that he misses is usually from the side and it misses in front of the rim. Never even close to being on line.

Wieskamp after a slow start to the season is up to 14/6/2 per game.

Joe T is absurdly fast/quick/tough, he has a high ceiling if he can fix his shot mechanics. Carsen Edwards ‘esque

He had some Pemsl passes too. Just knock it off, and look at the back rim when you shoot.

Maryland’s length and athleticism is crazy. After the first four minutes I figured Iowa would lose by 20. Glad I was wrong.

His free throw shooting looks decent. Not sure why his three point shot is so broke

They shot like shit and didn’t hustle. Another Maryland team that probably underachieves
