2014 Big Ten Tournament Predictions and Preview

As we head into the 2014 Big Ten Tournament, every coach’s job is safe. That’s the first time I’ve ever been able to say that during the past five years. I’ve been covering the BTT every year since 2010, and “Championship Week” has meant “Pink Slip Week” as one coach has gotten fired during each tournament in every year since 2011. On top of job security, the 2014...

Iowa-Penn St. Preview

Iowa's high-scoring, up-tempo attack has made it tough for its big inside players to get much notice. Still, it has been the consistent efforts of players like Melsahn Basabe, Adam Woodbury and Gabe Olaseni that have made the 16th-ranked Hawkeyes so good. The Hawkeyes haven't been that consistent lately, though, and they'll try to win back-to-back games Saturday for...

Iowa basketball: What to take from an unsightly victory

Fans that tuned in to watch the Iowa basketball team take on Illinois last night were treated to a game that could be described as great, good, bad, ugly, and downright embarrassing at times. Yes it was that kind of night for the Hawkeyes. Luckily the same team that gave away a 21 point first half lead in seemingly the blink of an eye was also able to get its act together in time...

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 75, Iowa 71

That was a well-needed nightcap for all us Packers fans. In what was a preview of a possible B1G championship rematch, the Badgers held serve at home by defeating Iowa 75-71. The game started out very similarly to the Florida game as Iowa scored in transition and Wisconsin couldn’t shoot. This combination led to the Hawkeyes taking a 11 point lead into half. Wisconsin...

Hawkeyes Beat Nebraska in B1G Opener

The Iowa Hawkeyes won their Big Ten basketball opener for the first time since 2006, beating Nebraska 67-57.  Those are most of the highlights as this was arguably Iowa’s worst game of the season thus far. Iowa shot 39 free throws but made just 22 of them.  Nebraska had 18 more field goal attempts than Iowa because of too many Hawkeye turnovers and Nebraska being +7 on the offensive...
