What to Know

The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats and the Iowa Hawkeyes will face off at 7:01 p.m. ET November 7th at Carver-Hawkeye Arena to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for Bethune-Cookman (9-21), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Iowa went 26-10 last season and made a brief appearance in the NCAA tournament before losing 67-63 to the Richmond Spiders in the first round.

Two last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Wildcats ranked 12th worst with respect to points per game last year, where the squad accrued only 63.4 on average (bottom 97%). The Hawkeyes' offense has more to brag about, as they they were fifth best in points per game, finishing the 2021-2022 season with 83.2 on average.
