It is a quick turnaround for the Iowa Hawkeyes who will host Stony Brook this (Friday) evening in the second round of the NIT. The Hawks opened with a 68-52 win over Indiana State before a sellout crowd on Wednesday night and coach Fran McCaffery says they will need another big crowd to help against a Stony Brook team that opened with a victory at UMass. He says the players don’t mind the quick turnaround.

Iowa is 21-12 and McCaffery says they want the season to continue past this evening. Stony Brook is 24-7 on the season. The pre-game show begins at 7:30-p.m., on KJAN, with the tip-off from Iowa City at 8:30.
