Iowa pummeled Michigan on Saturday with an offensive attack that’s as good as we’ve seen this season. Iowa missed 32 shots and rebounded 15 of them. Seven turnovers. 59 percent from three.

Here's one topic mentioned every time your team plays

Watch a conference enough, and you can’t help but notice that every team has a common theme that gets mentioned in every broadcast. Chances are, you know your team’s topic of conversation.
