Iowa is a superb offensive basketball team — the second-best in the nation according to Ken Pomeroy (behind Gonzaga) — and everything the Hawkeyes do oozes skill and confidence on that end. While their defense continues to lag behind their offense, it is within shouting distance of being “good enough” to allow the Hawkeyes to make a deep run in the NCAA tournament as they currently sit within the top-100 defenses in the country — top-75 would be better, but Iowa can get there in a matter of games if it strings together a few good defensive performances.
