Iowa basketball facing challenge of replicating winning performance

IOWA CITY — Once is not enough. The Iowa men’s basketball team played quality basketball on Thursday night in a 104-97 overtime win at Illinois, picking up the first Big Ten Conference win of the season.

Iowa 104, Illinois 97 (OT): 3 takeaways, highlights

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – It looked for 20 minutes like Thursday night was going to be yet another frustrating, pound-your-head-against-a-wall game for the Iowa men’s basketball team. But less than three minutes into the second half, the Hawkeyes changed that tune with emphasis. Despite a running 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to overtime, Iowa left State Farm Center with its...

Patience, perseverence have paid off for Iowa's Hannah Stewart

IOWA CITY — They were close friends. They were deep reserves. They were The Dakotans. As freshmen on the University of Iowa women’s basketball team, Hannah Stewart (hometown: Minot, N.D.) and Tagyn Larson (Sioux Falls, S.D.) combined for 37 minutes of floor time. They registered a total of five points — all by Stewart. “It was hard, not playing much,” Stewart said. Larson left...

Iowa backup quarterback is ‘wide open’

IOWA CITY — Here’s another example of the graduate transfer being one of the best things the NCAA has thought of in recent years. Quarterback Tyler Wiegers did everything Iowa asked him to do as a backup quarterback for four years. Wiegers never made it to a starting role.

Kirk Ferentz counting on Iowa offensive line to take a ‘big step’ in 2018

IOWA CITY — Classes don’t start at the University of Iowa until next Tuesday, so Alaric Jackson didn’t have to be in the Iowa weight room Wednesday morning, but he was. Yes, Jackson, a sophomore offensive tackle, was suspended for the Hawkeyes’ Pinstripe Bowl victory over Boston College, so, maybe he’s a little more eager than most to get back to it. Still, the read here is positive...

‘Antsy’ Makenzie Meyer remains sidelined

IOWA CITY — Not yet. The best-case scenario for Makenzie Meyer’s return to the Iowa women’s basketball team was two weeks.

Iowa basketball searching for intangible answers

IOWA CITY — Pride. Desire. Determination. Patience.

Hlas: Men’s basketball misery has Iowa-wide company

Maybe this year’s Iowa gubernatorial candidates should promise exorcists for our state universities’ men’s basketball programs. What’s going on is what Dr. Hunter S.
