Iowa: Three Things to Watch
1. Aaron White
Cody Zeller will be the most highly publicized sophomore on the floor, but the Hawkeyes have their own impressive second-year player in White, a 6-8 forward who comes in averaging 13.6 points and 6.5 rebounds. Iowa hasn’t played since December 22nd, but in that blowout win over Coppin State, White was an efficient 7...

Iowa opened the Big Ten with an encouraging effort against fifth-ranked Indiana, which many think might win the league in 2013.

So it was only fitting that when they needed a huge bucket late to put the pesky Hawkeyes away on the road, Oladipo was the one to get it. With 1:03 remaining and Indiana ahead just 63-60...
