Here are my predictions with some thoughts below
Iowa has played Illinois even in two games this year, in my opinion. Iowa led by 15 at one point yesterday in Champaign and missed too many free throws to win, but still had a game winner rattle in and out as time was expiring. This is probably a stretch having Iowa beating Illinois, as it will be their third game in three days if they advance that far and beating Rutgers is hardly a given. Still, I wrote it down…so it’s done.
