A 10-8 Big Ten mark guarantees Hawkeyes zip

Iowa has winning left to do if it is to be admitted into the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Just how much winning, who knows? But it obviously has to start Thursday against Indiana. Lose to the 17-14 Hoosiers in Washington at the Big Ten tournament, and it’s wait until Sunday night to see when and where the Hawkeyes start NIT play. Iowa went 10-8 in the Big Ten and is 18-13...

Iowa takes 4-game streak to Big Ten tourney

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) For most of the season, Iowa seemed destined for the NIT. A fantastic February has the Hawkeyes hoping to hear their name called on Selection Sunday. Iowa (18-13, 10-8 Big Ten) put itself in the NCAA Tournament discussion by closing the year with a flourish. The Hawkeyes have won four straight and finished two games above .500 in a Big Ten that, while down...

Iowa hurdler Aaron Mallett working his way toward stardom

IOWA CITY — When asked what he wants to do after he graduates, Aaron Mallett stops for a second, grins and shyly shrugs. In the Iowa senior hurdler’s head, however, he sees the bright lights. The dream, ever since he was a kid growing up in St. Louis, has been to become a professional track and field athlete. His drive, he said, comes from a deep desire to be better than everyone...

Iowa reverts at the wrong time, falls to Indiana

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The final two weeks of the regular season seemed to show a seismic shift in the way the Iowa men’s basketball team executed defensively. No matter if it was zone or man-to-man defense, if it was on the glass or in help defense, the Hawkeyes played — to borrow the term Coach Fran McCaffery uses often — connected. That changed drastically on Thursday night...

Iowa leaves Big Ten Tournament with mix of disappointment and desire

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In the locker room Thursday night, after the Iowa men’s basketball team lost, 95-73, to Indiana, the Hawkeyes talked of the postseason. In one breath, several players still threw out the NCAA tournament as a possibility, but in the other there was resigned admission to their opening-game exit from the Big Ten tournament signaling the end of the bubble talk...

Hawkeyes probably on wrong side of bubble again

IOWA CITY — If the Iowa Hawkeyes could have a mulligan, they would have taken it in late December. “I would love to take the Illinois game back,” women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder said. That was the only really bad loss this season for the Hawkeyes (17-13). And it might be the loss that ultimately keeps them out of the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. The...

Hawkeyes ready for ‘valuable’ NIT

IOWA CITY — The Iowa men’s basketball team wasn’t sweating whether or not it would be playing in the NCAA Tournament or the NIT. While the NCAA Selection Show was airing, Coach Fran McCaffery said his team was somewhere in the middle of practice or a team meal. No matter the perception of either tournament, the Hawkeyes won’t view a No. 1 seed in the NIT as a missed opportunity...

Hawkeyes, beware! NIT No. 1 seeds often fall early

You knew the NIT isn’t the NCAA tournament, but maybe not for a reason I’m about to share with you. Never has a No. 1 seed lost a first-round NCAA tournament game since the tourney expanded to 64 teams in 1985. It won’t happen this year, either. Although given what we’ve seen in sports over the last 12 months with the Cubs’ comeback, the Patriots’ comeback, the Cavaliers’...

Hawkeyes out of NCAA; ISU, Drake, UNI in

IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeyes are the odd team out. Three women’s basketball teams from the state were called for the NCAA women’s basketball tournament. Iowa State. Drake. UNI. Narrowly bypassed by the NCAA for the second straight year, the Hawkeyes landed back in the WNIT when the brackets for both were released Monday. The opponent, site and time for the Hawkeyes (17...

Points in Transition: Iowa vs South Dakota NIT preview

The Iowa men’s basketball is a No. 1 seed in the NIT, so the Hawkeyes get at least one more game at Carver-Hawkeye Arena this season. The first of which welcomes the Summit League’s South Dakota into town (8 p.m., ESPN2), as well as a former Hawkeye in Trey Dickerson as the Coyotes’ point guard. For each NIT game, we’ll look at key players, strengths and weaknesses for both...

Iowa’s Thomas Gilman eyes last shot at national title

Many trained five years for one shot at a national title. Some may have intensified their approach for this season, this postseason or even this last week. For Thomas Gilman, he has devoted himself to this moment since he first stepped on the mat and well before he donned the University of Iowa’s signature black-and-gold singlet. “I’ve been training my whole life for this,”...

Bluder to Big Ten: Schedule better

IOWA CITY — Lisa Bluder has a clear message to her Big Ten comrades: “Schedule better,” she said Tuesday as the Hawkeyes prepared for their first-round WNIT game with Missouri State. “We need to do this. If nobody follows suit, this is what happens.” The Big Ten has dropped from elite status in women’s basketball. Only four teams — Maryland, Ohio State, Michigan State...

Iowa balancing motivators for NIT run

IOWA CITY — Sometimes it’s OK to play angry. The Iowa men’s basketball team has a little anger at the moment. Sure, the Hawkeyes are more than a little frustrated they won’t be playing in the NCAA Tournament. But that’s secondary to the frustration they have with themselves for how the Indiana game played out in the Big Ten Tournament. As one of the first four out, it...

No WNIT ‘flop’ repeat, Hawkeyes insist

IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeyes are in the same postseason women’s basketball tournament as last year, but with a different mindset. “Last year, we were so disappointed, we just flopped in the WNIT,” Coach Lisa Bluder said. “This year, we’ve embraced it. It could be a lot of fun.” The Hawkeyes (17-13) host Missouri State (16-14) in a WNIT first-rounder Thursday. Tipoff...

Hlas: Unlike America, Hawkeye fans nuts for NIT

IOWA CITY — Some see a berth in the National Invitational Tournament as half-empty, others view it as half-full. Iowa considers it filled nearly to the brim. Iowa is the NIT’s great outlier. It had 12,864 fans for its 87-75 win over the South Dakota Coyotes Wednedsay night in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Maybe the Hawkeyes’ 6:30 p.m. second-round game against TCU here Sunday will...

The Hawkeyes got an 87-75 win against South Dakota on Wednesday night in front of an electric Carver-Hawkeye Arena crowd of 12,864, and part of what made them electric was the play...

Iowa’s C.J. Eldred out for season

IOWA CITY — University of Iowa junior right-handed pitcher C.J. Eldred will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing a partial repair surgery of the UCL on Wednesday in St. Louis. Eldred’s rehab is anticipated to be seven to eight months. The Mount Vernon native pitched in one game in 2017 during the opening weekend at South Florida. He was 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA. As a...

Tyler Cook surging with all-around game for Iowa

IOWA CITY — Midway through the second half, Iowa guard Jordan Bohannon dribbled out of pressure on the perimeter and tossed up a lob toward the Hawkeyes’ hoop. Waiting was fellow freshman Tyler Cook, who was only prevented from what would’ve been a roof-raising alley-oop by a South Dakota foul. Cook went to the free throw line and gave Bohannon a fist-bump with a Cheshire...

Hlas: Hoosiers and Steve Alford ... not Iowa’s concerns this time

How many baby boys and girls in Iowa would be named “Francis” or “Frances” in honor of Fran McCaffery? Sports is a funny animal.

Iowa moves forward after strong start at NCAA Championships

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — University of Iowa Coach Tom Brands wasted little time turning his attention to the second day. He is not one to dwell on the past and he was ready to move on to the tests ahead of his Hawkeyes instead of focusing on the ones they already passed. Fourth-ranked Iowa have six quarterfinalists and all nine qualifiers left after the first day of the NCAA Division I...
