Iowa 64 (+2.5), Virginia Tech 70
Iowa was in the 300s in 3-pt percentage and 3-pt% defense coming into this game. Both of those numbers came back to normal a little bit as the Hawkeyes shot 12-27 from beyond the arc and the Hokies were a cool 4-15. That wasn’t enough, though, as Dorenzo Hudson, a career 27% 3-pt shooter, hit a 27 footer with the Hokies leading by 4 and the shot clock expiring. The 7-point VT lead was enough to stay comfortably in front the rest of the way.
Illinois +4 on the road against traditional December killers Clemson is laughable tonight. Don’t see how Illinois has a chance coming off back-to-back losses.
