Hawks host Nittany Lions Thursday night


January 30th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Hawkeyes seek to bounce back from a brutal overtime loss at Purdue when it hosts Penn State, Thursday night. The Nittany Lions are 0-8 in the league, while the Hawkeyes are 10-2 at home this season. Iowa has 53 starts by freshmen, which ranks sixth-highest nationally. But there’s a chance that Melsahn Basabe could earn the nod over struggling freshman Adam Woodbury, who has scored just 2 points in each of his last five games. Tip-time at Carver Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, is at 7-p.m. Thursday. You can hear the game on KJAN.
