VEGAS: Cincinnati -4
After a two-season hiatus, Iowa basketball is BACK. Back in the NCAA Tournament, that is. And for all the (understandable) gripes we might have about the way Iowa ended the season, it's still great to be back in the Big Dance. A good showing here would go a long way in erasing the bad taste of February and early March. Cincinnati is a challenging opponent, but not an unstoppable one. C'mon, Hawks. We've dug out our best dancing shoes from the closet -- let's go have some fun.
The usual rules apply.
