IOWA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Hawkeyes’ Tyler Cook has dialed up the heat

Putting oversized expectations on college athletes isn’t the kindest thing to do, so I’ll couch things by saying this: It wouldn’t be the biggest surprise of all-time if Iowa freshman power forward Tyler Cook becomes a Big Ten Player of the Year candidate in future seasons. Many players are to credit for Hawkeye basketball’s best week of the season, which was last week when...

Big fourth-quarter run lifts Iowa past Wisconsin, 71-60

IOWA CITY — Trailing by four points to Wisconsin with 7:47 left in the fourth quarter, Lisa Bluder called a timeout. The Iowa women’s basketball head coach was not happy with her team’s half-court offense and for good reason. A nine-point halftime lead was gone, shots weren’t falling and while there was ball movement, shooters weren’t getting open. Senior guards Ally Disterhoft...

Perfection eludes Iowa’s Ally Disterhoft, and so does satisfaction

IOWA CITY — Ally Disterhoft is human, so perfection is impossible. And she hates it. “Part of me is never satisfied,” Disterhoft said as she reflected on a remarkable basketball career at the University of Iowa. “If I have a game that looks good on paper and I miss a couple free throws, it bothers me. “I probably don’t celebrate success as much as I should.” Her father...

Iowa baseball looking for players in own backyard

IOWA CITY — Rick Heller wants to keep talent on the Iowa baseball roster close to home. Over the past four years, the head coach has been increasing the volume of players from the Hawkeye state on his team. This season the number sits at 21 — the most in at least the last 10 seasons. “That was the goal when I got the job,” Heller said. “If we’re going to ever get to Omaha...

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Jordan Bohannon scored 15 points, Tyler Cook added 13 and Iowa held on for an 81-70 win over Nebraska on Sunday.

Bohannon scores 17 as Jok-less Iowa crushes Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Jordan Bohannon scored 17 points and Iowa took command early and posted its first road win of the season with an 83-63 victory over Rutgers on Tuesday night.

How Iowa Will Move On After Jok

This year’s Iowa men’s basketball team is vastly different than the team Hawkeyes fans got to know just a season ago. The 2015-2016 edition of the team featured a starting lineup comprised of four seniors and one junior, notched five wins against top-25 foes (including #1 Michigan State), had a 17-4 record through the end of January, and reached as high as a #3 ranking in the...
