The Hawkeyes put up plenty of points while giving away plenty of opportunities as well.  They have a top scorer in Keegan Murray.

Iowa is 6-1 Against The Spread in their last 7 games overall.

They have won 22 of their games by more than 10 points this season.  They are 13-2 Straight Up over their last 15 games.

KenPom adjusted offensive efficiency: 66
KenPom adjusted defensive efficiency: 117

Over Total: 15-19
Odds to win NCAA Championship: +40000

Against ranked opponents Richmond is just 1-5 Against The Spread, and there is not a whole lot of wiggle room with a +10.5 line.

They've already overcome double digit deficits in two conference games this season.  Against Iowa that looked like much more difficult to achieve.

We had the Hawkeyes at -10 as the play here but like many of you, Richmond put us in our place with a shock win and advance to play Providence.
