Why would it? One bad game doesn't change a thing. Iowa will still be a darkhorse B1G championship contender, and Iowa State will be lucky to make the NIT.
If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
He clearly needs to get stronger, but if you think that kid isn't a good player you're crazy. He didn't have a great game tonight, but you just don't see 7'1" with those kinds of skills very often. Most 7' frosh look like they are going to trip over their own feet at any minute. Austin can handle the ball, has good footwork in the post, and has a good looking shot. I think he could definitely use another year in college to get stronger, but he will be an NBA player.
Didn't BUBU just walk up to him and take the ball right out of his hands tonight? He has all the strength of a 7' 1" wet noodle. he can shoot but the pros like you to hang on the ball too.
