Iowa’s lackluster start aggravates players

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Disappointment was prevalent from outside the Iowa locker room, but it wasn’t confined to just the final result Thursday night.

Defense plagues Iowa women in loss to No. 6 Ohio State

IOWA CITY — Lisa Bluder and the Iowa women’s basketball team knew what was coming in No. 6 Ohio State. The Hawkeyes knew the Buckeyes brought with them a fast and efficient offense, and any hopes of an upset would be to at least slow them down, while keeping pace on offense. Iowa got off on the foot they wanted, but a 10-0 run to end the first quarter, then a third quarter in...

Hlas: Dynamic Hoosiers too much at home for Hawkeyes

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Iowa’s lofty spot in the national rankings, its projected No. 1 NCAA seed by those who project such things, its recent Sports Illustrated cover – all were less significant Thursday night than a tsunami warning in southern Indiana. Or were they? Something certainly made Assembly Hall’s crowd stay intensely loud for two hours, and that something was a deep...

Texas A&M, Providence, and SMU: February tales as old as time

Remember the 2014 Iowa Hawkeyes? They merit a place in a discussion of the current college basketball season, and more specifically, what transpired on a wild Wednesday night. Other teams have done what 2014 Iowa did. Consider the 2011 Villanova Wildcats as another example. If you look through the record books, you’ll find yet more teams in the same boat.

Iowa-Indiana Preview

Iowa hasn't been atop the Big Ten this late in a season in 10 years, and it's been much longer since it won a regular-season conference title. The fourth-ranked Hawkeyes don't need a history lesson to know what's at stake over the last seven games, though, especially with two coming against an Indiana team also in the mix. Iowa looks to extend its winning streak to four when it...

Iowa football recruiting: Expect one of the new running backs to play in '16

Iowa running back remains one of the great curiosities of Big Ten football. It’s mostly a collective. When it works, it’s brilliant and fits with what Kirk Ferentz wants his offense to be (Iowa finished fifth in the B1G in rushing this season, its highest finish since 2008). Big Ten defenses defend Iowa’s scheme. You see teams often overload the line of scrimmage because that’s...
