Iowa State vs Washington State Prediction | March Madness Expert Picks

By all accounts, this should be a slow-paced defensive war. Iowa State, one of the two best defensive teams in the country, hasn’t allowed over 65 points since February 19th. Washington State isn’t quite on that level, but they play with a physicality and level of discipline that makes it hard for offenses to consistently score. Isaac Jones scored 20 points in the Cougars’ round one win against Drake and will need to be impactful again in this one for them to move on to the Sweet Sixteen. For the Cyclones, freshman Milan Momcilovic will look to build off his 19-point outing against South Dakota State.

Although this game will almost certainly be low scoring, it won’t be because of poor play. This will be a battle between two teams that defend at a high-level, rebound well, and take care of the ball for the most part. In the end, I believe Iowa State just does everything at a slightly higher level. Their defense is maybe the best in the country and they have enough talent and playmaking to generate points For our Iowa State vs Washington State prediction, we are picking the Iowa State Cyclones to win and move on in the NCAA Tournament.
