The # 5 Iowa Hawkeyes (1-0) will continue their season at 4pm today with a game against the Southern Jaguars (0-1) to end the multi-team event at the Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Each of these cadres took on North Carolina Central to different results. The Hawks won big against the Eagles (97-67) while Southern lost in overtime (85-78).

By the time KenPom came into the season, Southern had rated it about 40 places higher at 254. The Jags finished last year at 17:15 with a SWAC record of 13-5, finishing second before the season was canceled.

This is Sean Woods’ third season, leading after eight seasons in Mississippi Valley State and Morehead State Southern. His only appearance at an NCAA tournament was in 2012 during his final season at MVSU. The Jags were ready for a shot at March Madness last year and ended the season with a winning streak of eight games.

Similar to NC Central, Southern is more defensive and allows a SWAC low . 885 points / possession according to KenPom throughout 2019-20 game. They did this by limiting second chance opportunities and forcing lots of sales. The Jaguars sent opponents into the free-throw line too often as their defensive free-throw rate was among the worst in Division I over the past year.

They’re giving back much of that roster, including their top two scorers at Ahsante Shivers and Micah Bradford. Like the defensive end, they prioritize rebounds and crash the offensive glass well.

Ahsante Shivers (G, 6’4 ”, 210 lbs): The senior guard led the team with 9 points last year. 8 points / game in an egalitarian offense. The wing is capable of anywhere on the ground and has done an excellent job over the past season at reaching the free throw line where it shot 78%. Yesterday he was Southern’s top scorer with 20 points on the 7/17 shoot-out as he added five assists and three steals. It’s worth monitoring: he has played a game 43 minutes high and may be broadcast later in the game.

Jayden Saddler (G, 6’1 ”, 195 lbs): The Jaguars’ starting point guard led the way with seven assists yesterday, but also filled the boxing score with 12 points and eight rebounds. He missed about half of Southern’s games yesterday but played his best basketball at the end of the season where he showed similar skills and was the group’s most pesky jag leading on steals / 100 possessions (3). 2).

Damiree Burns (F, 6’7 ”, 210 lbs): Burns is one of two strikers Southern will start, and the lighter of the two, about 40 pounds less than Kirk Parker. He averaged 8. 6 points / game last season in just 18. 6 minutes playing time and could be a disproportion for Connor McCaffery or Joe Wieskamp if all starters are on the ground. He finished yesterday with 14 points but struggled defensively and messed up like he did in six games last season.

Will the defense be ready after the jump? Iowa wasn’t exactly bad on this side of the ground while the starters were on the ground when the Eagles scored about one goal . 90 points / possession in the first 30 minutes. However, it cannot be denied that Iowa started slowly as the NCCU kept pace with the Hawks for much of the first half.

After Iowa settled in, they only allowed 25 points from roughly the 10-minute mark of the first half to the 10-minute mark of the second (~ 0). 71 points / possession). If Iowa is able to take advantage of the residual advantage and do so from the first jump, it can temporarily ease defensive concerns.

Can Joe Wieskamp get started? The Iowa junior had a rocky end last season when he averaged just 8. 2 points in the last 6 games on Jan.. 4% shoot. Unfortunately, he picked up where he left off with a modest 9 points in 2/4 shooting when struggling with nasty problems.

Wieskamp is someone who too often lets himself be guided by whether his first shot goes in or not (he didn’t go in on Wednesday). . It would be great if Fran prioritized a simple basket for Joe to start today’s game like he did in the past.

Is the bank pursuing its strong performance? Pat McCaffery and Keegan Murray looked like prime-time players to loan a set from Dick Vitale. Your emergence along the wing will be enormous to relieve Wieskamp and give Fran versatility in setting up constellations, since both with their framework and their willingness to rebound can function as modern centers.

Her success allowed Iowa to roll eight deep in the first 30 minutes as Fran didn’t have to dive under her (or Joe Toussaint) to start Iowa at either end of the course. It was an impressive opening for their 2020-21 season and if they continue to develop in a similar way it will add stability to the Iowa rotation.
