What to Know
The Southeastern Louisiana Lions will hit the road for the fifth straight game as they head to Carver-Hawkeye Arena at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The Iowa Hawkeyes will be strutting in after a victory while the Lions will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Southeastern Louisiana found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 77-54 punch to the gut against the Iowa State Cyclones on Sunday. Guard Gus Okafor (13 points) was the top scorer for Southeastern Louisiana.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the contest between Iowa and the Utah State Aggies this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Iowa wrapped it up with a 94-75 win. It was another big night for Iowa’s forward Keegan Murray, who had 35 points in addition to seven rebounds.
The Lions have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 28 point spread they are up against. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.
Southeastern Louisiana is now 4-8 while the Hawkeyes sit at 8-3. Iowa is 6-1 after wins this season, and Southeastern Louisiana is 3-4 after losses.
