The Miami basketball team will face a completely different style than Iowa State. Kansas averages 78.4 points per game and allows 67.7. Miami averages 74.6 and allows 70.2. This could be the highest-scoring point total in a game of the NCAA Tournament that Miami plays in. Turnovers will continue to be key for Miami.

After the game on Friday, Miami ranks fifth nationally with a turnover margin of 4.6 per game. Miami forced 18 Iowa State turnovers, but also committed 14. That’s double their total for the first two rounds.
