IOWA: Last season: 14-19
Nickname: Hawkeyes
Coach: Fran McCaffery
Conference: Big Ten
Who's gone: Forward Ahmad Wagner, guard Brady Ellingson.
Who's back: Forward Tyler Cook, who led the team in scoring (15.3 points per game), rebounding (6.8) and field goal percentage (.566), returned for his junior season after flirting with the pros. Fellow junior Jordan Bohannon averaged 13.5 points and 5.4 assists per game while shooting 43 percent on 3s a year ago. Six-foot-11 center Luke Garza (12.1 points, 6.4 rebounds a game) could take a big step forward as a sophomore, but he was slowed by a cyst on his spleen in the offseason and may not be ready for the opener.
Who's new: Freshman Joe Wieskamp, the two-time Gatorade Player of the Year in Iowa, is a scoring wing who will likely start immediately for a team seeking an infusion of elite-level talent.
The Skinny: The Hawkeyes were arguably the worst defensive Power Five team in America a year ago. They have their top nine scorers back this season, but if those guys don't learn how to get stops it won't matter much.
Expectations: Iowa is a 250-to-1 longshot to win the national title. The Hawkeyes would probably settle for 20 wins and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.
CINCINNATI: Last season: 31-5, reached second round of NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Bearcats.
Coach: Mick Cronin.
Conference: American Athletic.
Who's gone: Guard Jacob Evans III (NBA), forward Gary Clark, forward Kyle Washington.
Who's back: Junior guard Jarron Cumberland, the top returning scorer at 11.5 points per game, leads a roster that will rely heavily on perimeter play. Senior point guards Cane Broome (7.9 ppg) and Justin Jennifer (4.8) are counted on for leadership and more points. The Bearcats' front line is undergoing a major overhaul as it tries to replace Clark ' the Bearcats' best player who averaged 12.9 points and 8.7 rebounds ' and Washington, who averaged 11.3 points and 5.5 rebounds. Junior forward Tre Scott (3.1 ppg) is expected to move into a bigger role, along with sophomore Eliel Nsoseme (0.9).
Who's new: Swingman Rashawn Fredericks is expected to contribute right away as a transfer from Motlow State Community College in Tennessee. Freshman forward LaQuill Hardnett averaged 17 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists at Perry Hall High School in Philadelphia. Freshman guard Logan Johnson averaged 22 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists at St. Francis High School in California. How quickly they learn to fit Cincinnati's defensive schemes will determine how much they play.
The Skinny: Cincinnati had its best team under Cronin, winning the conference and going 15-1 at Northern Kentucky University while its on-campus arena was renovated and finishing No. 6 in the AP poll. The Bearcats blew a 22-point lead with 11 minutes left and lost to Nevada in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, matching the second-biggest meltdown in tournament history. They're always a defense-oriented team. Their biggest question is whether they can score enough with Evans ' their top scorer ' and Clark gone.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers give Cincinnati an 85-1 shot at winning the NCAA Tournament, the same as Ohio State ' the opponent that opens their renovated arena on Nov. 7. They and Wichita State are expected to compete for the AAC title again.
Cincinnati readies for reeling Iowa in pseudo home game

The Cincinnati Bearcats might not be thrilled with the seed they drew for the NCAA Tournament, but the consolation prize is a veritable home game against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday in first-round action in Columbus, Ohio.

The No. 22 Bearcats (28-6) earned the seventh seed in the South Region despite winning the American Athletic Conference tournament championship. Their opponent is 10th-seeded Iowa (22-11), which limps into the tournament having lost five of its past six games.

"Seed doesn't matter. We proved that last year," Cincy head coach Mick Cronin said Sunday, alluding to the second-seeded Bearcats' second-round loss to seventh-seeded Nevada in 2018. "You can't control what happens to you. You can control how you react to it."

And the best part for Cincy: The game is 107 miles away from home.

"Great for your fans," Cronin said. "I was very concerned about getting shipped out west. I say all the time -- enjoy this. A lot of money is made off of these kids. It's important that their families can get to these games."

The Hawkeyes don't seem to be fazed by the site of their first-round game.

"They'll definitely have some fans out there. But I think we'll have some fans out there, too," Iowa sophomore Luka Garza said. "It's not their home gym, so it's not a home game for them. It's a neutral site."

The Bearcats enter the tourney on a high of a three-game winning streak, including defeating AAC foe Houston on Sunday for the first time in three tries to claim the league tourney title for the second consecutive year.

It's the ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance for the Bearcats.

The Hawkeyes, meanwhile, got trounced by Michigan in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament, capping an ugly finish to the regular season. Iowa was sitting pretty at 9-5 (20-5 overall) in the conference on Feb. 16, having overcome an 0-3 start to the Big Ten campaign. They were ranked for 14 weeks in a 16-week span.

But a couple of buzzer-beating wins gave way to five losses over the final three weeks of the season, and the skid included a two-game suspension of Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery for verbal abuse of a game official after a 20-point loss to Ohio State on Feb. 26.

The result: A 10th seed in the NCAA Tournament.

"I don't really care about the seeding," said Garza, the team's second-leading scorer. "Once you get into March, it doesn't matter where you're seeded. We see it all the time."

The Bearcats are led by AAC Player of the Year Jarron Cumberland, who dropped 33 points on Houston in the AAC tournament finale. The junior averages 18.8 points per game for Cincy.

The Hawkeyes counter with junior forward Tyler Cook, who leads Iowa in scoring (14.9) and rebounding (7.9).

With four players who average in double figures, Iowa does much of its damage from 3-point territory while Cook operates inside. Jordan Bohannon leads with 75 made 3-pointers for the Hawkeyes, who connected for 267 on the season, nearly 50 more than the Bearcats.

The Bearcats opened as a slight favorite over Iowa, and the teams share three common opponents from the regular season.

The Hawkeyes defeated AAC member Connecticut in November and split with Ohio State over the course of their Big Ten slate. The Bearcats lost to the in-state rival Buckeyes in their first game of the season and defeated UConn twice in AAC action.

The winner will face the winner of No. 2 seed Tennessee vs. No. 15 Colgate on Sunday.
