Iowa basketball look ahead: Anthony Clemmons

Much of the talk surrounding the Iowa basketball team a year ago had to do with the tremendous depth at coach Fran McCaffery’s disposal. With so many capable players on the roster one has the luxury of substituting religiously in order to keep their team fresh while progressively wearing down the opposition, right? For a portion of 2013-14 that was indeed the case for the Hawkeyes...

Game Preview: Gophers vs. Hawkeyes

Not a ton to say about the Nebraska game.  It was nice to see the Gophers cruise to an easy win and nicer to see Rodney Williams look like the good Rodney Williams again, but it was obvious from the opening tip that Nebraska isn't nearly in the same class as the Gophers and, as such, it's tough to take too much away from that game other than the wheels haven't completely...

Five Key Plays: Iowa at Michigan

1) Iowa opens the game on a 7-0 run For the majority of the first half, it looked as though Iowa was going to give Michigan a game. It started with the Hawkeyes finding open looks inside against Michigan’s defense. The Wolverines had some trouble with defensive positioning early on, and Iowa got away with running some of the same action Michigan has run this season. First there...

Iowa's in-state rivalries now a doubleheader

For decades, Northern Iowa and Drake were guaranteed at least one home and one road game a year against a Big Ten and Big 12 team. It was a luxury rarely afforded a Missouri Valley team - and an opportunity for a resume booster that few mid-majors could match. It's now been reduced to a single game on a neutral floor in Iowa's state capital. The yearly home-and-home matchups...
