The Cyclones enter this game 8-0, including their win in the NIT Season Tip-Off Tournament last month. Last time out, they topped Creighton 64-58 in their Big East-Big 12 Battle matchup. 

That game was another strong defensive performance for the Cyclones. They allowed Creighton to shoot just 42.2% from the floor and came away with 11 steals. On the season, they're averaging 10.3 steals per game.

Like the Cyclones, the Hawkeyes began the season undefeated, opening the year with a 6-0 run. However, they've since fallen to 6-2 with losses to No. 2 Purdue and Illinois — both by single digits. 

Iowa can fill up the box score. They're averaging 90.1 points per game, which is second in the Big Ten and fifth among all Division-I teams. Sophomore forward Keegan Murray is among the top bucket-getters in the nation, averaging 23.9 points per game.

Will strong offense or strong defense win out in this rivalry matchup? Tune into ESPN 2 Thursday at 9 p.m. ET for the game.

Regional restrictions may apply.
