Iowa Men Host Drake Tonight in College Hoops


December 17th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The (5-5) Iowa Hawkeyes are looking for their first win over an instate opponent this season when they hosts Drake (6-3) tonight. The Hawkeyes lost at Northern Iowa 80-60 and lost at Iowa State 86-76. Drake beat the Cyclones 74-65 in Des Moines on Nov. 15th, but the Bulldogs are still looking for their first true road win.

Iowa’s Devyn Marble has led the Hawkeyes in scoring in each of their last two games since moving to the starting point guard spot. Iowa leads the series with Drake 55-10 overall, but the Bulldogs have won three of the last five meetings. Pre-game coverage of tonight’s action at Carver Hawkeye Arena begin at 7-p.m., on KJAN, with the tip-off at 8.
