Cincinnati Basketball: Preview for the Big 12 battle with Iowa State
During the most recent matchup with the new Big 12 opponent, Cincinnati picked up a 55-54 overtime win at Iowa State in December 2016.
It will be important for the Bearcats to avoid a slow start again and limit Iowa State duo Tre King and Keshon Gilbert from finding success.
The Cyclones are currently among the nation's top defenses with only 62.1 points allowed per game and that ranks second in the Big 12.
Wes Miller's team should have an opportunity to secure a crucial victory over a Big 12 contender but it will likely be difficult to outlast Iowa State.
