Following a double-digit loss to then-No. 6 Michigan, Maryland men’s basketball looks to regroup tonight against No. 21 Iowa, the Terps’ third consecutive ranked foe.
Maryland struggled to its worst offensive performance in six years Saturday against the Wolverines, shooting 36.4 percent and turning the ball over 16 times in the 65-52 loss. Aaron Wiggins was one of the lone bright spots, chipping in 15 points and six rebounds off the bench.
Now, the Terps must turn it around against the high-flying Hawkeyes, who average 81.2 points per game, the best mark in the Big Ten. Iowa comes in on a four-game winning streak, highlighted by a home win over Michigan and buzzer-beating victories over Northwestern and Rutgers. Tyler Cook leads the way for Iowa, averaging 16.3 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game. Luka Garza, Joe Wieskamp and Jordan Bohannon also average double-digit points for the Hawkeyes. Lamar has the full preview here.

No. 21 Iowa: 20-5, 9-5 Big Ten
All-time series: Maryland leads 5-3
