February 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Iowa travels to Nebraska today for its final road game of the season tonight. The Hawkeyes can reach .500 in the Big Ten for the first time since former coach Steve Alford’s final season with wins over the Huskers and Northwestern on Saturday. Nebraska stunned Iowa in Iowa City 79-73 last month after falling behind in the first half. This will be Iowa’s first visit to Lincoln since 1976. Tip-time at the Devan Sports Center in Lincoln, NE, is 8-p.m.  You can hear the action tonight, on KJAN, beginning with the pre-game show.

Iowa State looks for its second straight road win when it faces 7th-ranked Missouri tonight. The Tigers beat Iowa State 76-69 on Jan. 10th. The Cyclones will be seeking their 12th conference win, a mark they’ve only reached twice before. Missouri has lost two straight for the first time all season. Tip-time at the Mizzou Arena in Columbia, MO, is 7-p.m.
