That would be just the first battle he would face as a Spartan — he has since been maintaining a weight of 270 lbs, allowing him to become a more physically fit and...
Iowa’s first test of the Big Ten tournament is in the books as the Hawkeyes beat Northwestern 73-59. Iowa had its chances to make the final margin much wider.
Northwestern employed a zone throughout much of the second half. Part of that is what they do and part of that is that Cats coach Bill Carmody called his final timeout with more than 19 minutes remaining in the game and...
