Iowa vs Grand Canyon Predictions & Tips


Iowa’s efficient offense should lead them to victory here. They may not have it all their own way though.

Grand Canyon are a school ‘on the up’ and they possess the size to cause Iowa a few problems.

The Antelopes do not have the defensive talent required to slow down this high-scoring Hawkeyes offense however.

That could be telling as Iowa pull away to cover the spread and win.

  • Iowa have won eight of the last 10
  • The Hawkeyes’ most recent defeats came against teams ranked #3 at the time
  • Iowa put up 102 points in a recent rout of Nebraska
  • The Hawkeyes possess the second most efficient offense in the country behind only #1 Gonzaga

Iowa Form & Team News


Iowa may have fallen fairly early in the Big Ten Tournament, but they are in decent form.

The Hawkeyes have won eight of their last 10 and their two losses came against teams ranked #3 at the time – Illinois and Michigan.

Iowa’s star man is undoubtedly 6’11 forward Luka Garza. Garza leads the team with an average of 23.7 points per game and he is also their top rebounder with 8.8 per outing.

He has played a pivotal role in the second most efficient offense in the country this season.

They have needed it too, because this team is not known for its defensive prowess.

Grand Canyon Form & Team News


Grand Canyon took WAC Tournament honours and have now won three straight games heading into March Madness.

The Antelopes have enjoyed rapid improvement since landing in D-I too and this March Madness appearance is no real shock.

Seven foot Danish center Asbjorn Midtgaard is one to watch here.

He leads the team with 14 points per game this season and has averaged 9.9 boards per outing.

His size and physicality in the paint will make for an interesting tussle with Iowa standout Garza.
