As of Tuesday, Iowa Coach Todd Lickliter said guards Jermain Davis and Jeff Peterson won’t play. Davis has a bruised left knee, while Peterson suffered a pulled right hamstring two weeks ago.
Lickliter said he plans to play Cyrus Tate about 7 minutes per half, like against Northwestern three weeks ago. Tate played 4 minutes against Michigan on Sunday, his first action since the Northwestern game.
Expect Jake Kelly, the Big Ten’s reigning player of the week, to run the point again. Matt Gatens and Devan Bawinkel will play the other guard slots, while Aaron Fuller and Jarryd Cole will play the post.
