WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT CHICAGO STATE
They're terrible. End of story. KenPom has them at #334 in his preseason rankings and that follows finishes of #335 (2017), #347 (2016), #327 (2015), #284 (2014), and #297 (2013) in the five previous seasons. Iowa has played them previously in 2011, thumping them, 96-53. The Cougars appear to return three of five starters, but this is still a team that Iowa should roll easily. Let's see the end of the bench again, fellas.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
We're not going to reinvent the wheel here, especially when Matt did such a fine job earlier this week -- so give a look at his write-up if you haven't done so already (and refresh your memory if you read it earlier in the week).

PREDICTION: Luka Garza puts up a similar stat line tonight.
PROJECTED STARTING LINEUP
PG: Jordan Bohannon
SG: Isaiah Moss
SF: Ahmad Wagner
PF: Tyler Cook
C: Luka Garza
During his presser yesterday, Fran indicated that Moss would be good to go today, so I expect him to start opposite Bohannon in the backcourt. With Baer out for 3-4 weeks, Ahmad Wagner seems most likely to replace him in the starting lineup. Bohannon, Cook, and Garza remain locked-on starters.
