One of the most talented teams in the country, the Iowa Hawkeyes started off the season very well. Unfortunately for the Hawkeyes, they didn't finish the season the same way, losing six of their last seven games, including a bad loss to the Northwestern Wildcats in the Big Ten Tournament. Nonetheless, the Hawkeyes are going dancing this year with a first-round matchup against the Tennessee Volunteers looming.
The Hawkeyes' leading scorer, senior guard Roy Devyn Marble, averaged 17.3 points per game. Of all the players on the Hawkeyes, Marble is the best at creating his own shot. He isn't just a scorer, though, as he averaged 1.8 steals per game.
One of the most athletic big men in the nation, Hawkeyes forward Aaron White averaged 13 points and 6.7 rebounds per game this season. His 13 points per game weren't a result of taking a lot of shots, as White was very efficient, shooting 59 percent from the floor.
If you are looking for a player on the Hawkeyes' roster to get a highlight dunk or block, Melsahn Basabe is that guy. Like White, Basabe is an explosive athlete. His stats aren't exactly great, but the depth on the Hawkeyes resulted in him playing just 18.1 minutes per game this season. Basabe averaged 7.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game during the 2013-14 season.
Hawkeyes point guard Mike Gesell doesn't try to do too much. With the talent around Gesell, he doesn't have to do much at all other than distribute the ball and take the occasional wide-open three-pointer. In 23.9 minutes per game, Gesell shot 32 percent from behind the arc while averaging 1.3 steals and 3.9 assists per game.
The Hawkeyes have so many talented guards and forwards that it is almost difficult for head coach Fran McCaffrey to find enough minutes for all of them. Jarrod Uthoff averaged just 18.2 minutes per game. In a somewhat limited role, Uthoff put up 7.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while shooting 50 percent from the floor. He also brings good floor spacing as he shot 43 percent from behind the arc.
