DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa, Iowa State, Northern Iowa and Drake will play a basketball doubleheader in Des Moines in each of the next four seasons. The Hawkeyes will face UNI and the Cyclones will play against Drake at Wells Fargo Arena on Dec. 15, 2012. Iowa State and UNI will then play each other in 2013, with Iowa facing Drake. This year’s matchups will be repeated in 2014. The doubleheader will replace the annual matchups that Iowa and Iowa State had with both UNI and Drake of the Missouri Valley Conference. Tickets for next year’s event will range from $25 to $70 and be valid for both games. Iowa and Iowa State will maintain their annual series, with next year’s game to be played in Iowa City.
