Hawkeye Win After Epic Comeback

Hawkeye Win After Epic Comeback

Iowa moves to 10-9 overall, 1-5 in Big Ten action. The Hawkeyes expected to contend for an upper-division Big Ten finish and return to the NCAA Tournament.

IL is a 5.5-point favorite on the opening line, while the Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 154.5 points.

Nicholas Baer started the overtime with a free throw, Cook got a dunk off a feed from Bohannon, Garza notched a 3-point play on a putback, Bohannon drilled his fifth 3-pointer of the game and Maishe Dailey added a free throw to make it 100-90 with a minute, 12 seconds remaining in overtime. He went 7 for 16 from the field, shooting 43.8%.

Underwood was frustrated at Thursday's loss, which came on the heels of tough road losses to Minnesota and MI. Michigan's 0.373 free throw rate was their biggest advantage over IL, who had a rate of 0.214. The Hawkeyes grabbed 17 offensive rebounds, leading to plenty of second-chance points - 18 to be exact.

IL appears to have an edge on the offensive glass in this contest.

Iowa enters this one with a 9-9 record this year. Of the Hawkeyes' 14 games that accepted bets, nine have finished over the projected point total.

IL reeled off 13 straight points in a run in which Iowa missed seven straight shots and also turned the ball over five times and the Illini later added a 10-0 run to seemingly take control.

IL enters the game winless in the Big Ten after the first four conference games and 10-7 overall.

The Hawkeyes came out on top in overtime, 104-97, for their first conference win of the season. In the most recent matchup, IL won 70-66. The Illini also are below average shooting the ball at a 49.1 effective field goal percentage, and don't take great care or share the ball well. Iowa made its first 17 free throws in the game; Bohannon and Garza had flawless nights, going 10-for-10 and 9-for-9, respectively.

On the road, Iowa is 3-5-1 ATS with 6 overs and 3 unders.

The Hawkeyes rank 33rd in blocks per game (4.9) while the Fighting Illini rank 166th (2.2).

The Fighting Illini rank 23rd in three pointers allowed per game (17.9) while the Hawkeyes rank 150th (22.4). Instead of going through just one devastating lapse in the first half, as it has in other games, Iowa actually had two and found itself trailing IL by as much as 20 (49-29) in the opening 20 minutes. IL is also 1-7 ATS in their last eight Thursday games and the under is 23-6 in their last 29 overall.

The buzz-beater didn't faze Iowa, as the team took control by scoring the first nine points of OT. Jordan Bohannon's dagger 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining stretched the Hawkeye lead to 99-90. "We scored the first 10 points of second half, so now it's a two possession game so it's a completely different game with 17 minutes to go".
