College Hoops Barometer: Risers & Fallers

This article is part of our College Hoops Barometer series.

The Iowa Hawkeyes aren't just winning; they are mauling the competition.  Through six games, Iowa has won by an average of 30.3 points.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Those wins haven't just been against cupcake opponents, either.  Iowa beat North Carolina by 13 and Iowa State by 28.  The conversation starts and ends with Luka Garza for the Hawkeyes.  The senior big man leads the nation in scoring at 29.2 points per contest.  Garza can do it all on the offensive end.  He has a bevy of post moves, canned six three-pointers versus Iowa State, and hit 10-of-12 free throws in a triumph over Southern.  At 6-foot-11, 265-lbs, Garza also pulled down nine boards per contest while also swatting 2.2 shots per contest.  A willing passer as well, Garza is the total package and has been every bit as dominant as expected coming into the season.

The No. 3 Hawkeyes are scheduled to play No. 1 Gonzaga on Saturday night in a Herculean matchup.  It will be interesting to see how Drew Timme and company attempt to handle Garza.  If it can be done at all.
