Iowa womens basketball coach Lisa Bluder is hopeful that Jamie Printy will be ready for the start of next season. The junior suffered a season ending knee injury last week in a victory at Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes will be on their home court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City for two games this week, beginning with tonight’s matchup against the Minnesota Golden Gophers. The game begins at 7-p.m.  Iowa will also host Michigan State, at 2-p.m. Sunday. A 6-5 Big Ten record and 14-10 overall mark this week, gives the Hawks a chance to boost their post-season hopes.
