Iowa men and women play today (Thursday)


March 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa men and women both play today. For the women, it’s the Big Ten tournament in Indianapolis. The Hawkeyes have to win four games in four days to get an automatic N-C-A-A bid, and coach Lisa Bluder says it’s tough. She says they have to go by the old “one game at a time” plan. Pre-game for Iowa versus Illinois gets underway at 1:15 on KJAN.

The Iowa men look to win again after stopping a three-game losing streak against Purdue. They are at Michigan State. Coach Fran McCaffery has been focusing on cutting back the turnovers this season after averaging in the double digits the last few seasons. Iowa had just five turnovers in the win against Purdue. Iowa is 20-9 overal and 9-7 in the Big Ten. They play Michigan State at 8 p-m. Catch the pre-game beginning at 7, also on KJAN.
