IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — There might not be a team in the country as unlucky as Iowa. Iowa (14-9, 3-7 Big Ten) has lost once to each of the top seven teams in the Big Ten standings. Five of those defeats have come by four points or less with the game in doubt in final minute. The Hawkeyes’ confidence is a major topic of conversation ahead of Saturday’s game against Northwestern (13-10, 4-6). Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says the Hawkeyes still believe in themselves and what they’re doing despite recent setbacks. Pre-game coverage of the game begins at 2:30-p.m., on KJAN.
