Illinois have gained a reputation this season for playing excellent basketball one half and poorly the other. Over their past three Big Ten matchups, the Illini have been outscored by an average of 15 points in just one half.

Iowa, meanwhile, is averaging just under 14 turnovers per game over the past three contests. The Hawkeyes’ strongest players in recent weeks include forwards Tyler Cook and Luke Garza, and guards Isaiah Moss, Jordan Bohannon and Maishe Dailey.

The matchup is sure to be a thrilling one.
