Over the course of Big Ten play, we’ve been tracking the plus-minuses of all 11 Iowa scholarship players to suit up in games this season. We broke them down three games at a time, allowing for better observations to be drawn and through a six-part series, we were able to show progression in the value players brought to the floor at both ends.

At this weekend’s Big Ten Tournament, Iowa ended up playing two games. The Hawkeyes won their first round contest against Northwestern before losing to Michigan State in the quarterfinals. Once again, we tracked plus-minuses for this pair of games. Typically, the plus-minus data gathered for this series comes courtesy of the site, statsheet.comWhile minutes proved to be correct for both games, the actual plus-minuses weren’t fully accurate.

As for the data, a few observations: The first was the return of Mike Gesell to the starting lineup from a stress reaction. At the Big Ten Tournament, Gesell finished with a combined +17. Secondly, there was having Devyn Marble available this time around when Iowa played Michigan State. He missed the Hawkeyes’ regular season meeting against the Spartans due to an ankle injury. In the quarterfinals, Marble finished with a +3, which would lead to credence to those who think his absence had a significant role in Iowa being unable to win that game two months ago.

Outside of that, the numbers were pretty mixed, which makes sense given how the Hawkeyes finished the weekend splitting a pair of tournament games. Once again, freshman guard Pat Ingram didn’t factor into the rotation, so his total numbers remain unchanged.

Like all six posts in our series during Big Ten play, there are three sets of numbers next to each name. The number surrounded by parentheses is the +/-. The first set of numbers is the point differential when that particular player is playing. Next to the +/- is the number of minutes played during all 20 Big Ten games Iowa ended up playing this season.

Underneath each player’s name will be data from the two tournament games, which will then be broken up with data from each individual game.
