Iowa men’s hoops set for first ever trip to Carrier Dome in Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Sports

June 6th, 2019 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa men’s basketball team will challenge Syracuse on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York, as part of the 2019 Big Ten/ACC Challenge. It will mark Iowa’s first-ever visit to the Carrier Dome.

ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU will combine to televise all 14 games of the event and all games will be available to stream via the ESPN app. Tip times and network designations will be announced at a later date.

Iowa has won four of its last six Challenge games by five points or less. Iowa topped Notre Dame (98-93) in Iowa City in 2013; won at No. 12 North Carolina (60-55) in 2014; outlasted Florida State (78-75) in overtime in Iowa City in 2015; and edged Pitt a year ago in Iowa City (69-68). The Hawkeyes lost at Notre Dame (92-78) in 2017 and fell at Virginia Tech (79-55) in 2018.

This will be Iowa’s fourth all-time meeting against Syracuse and the first as part of the Challenge. The Hawkeyes are 2-1 against the Orange, with all three previous games contested on neutral courts. Iowa won in Buffalo in 1957 (58-52) and Philadelphia (88-77) in 1980 in the Elite Eight. Syracuse was victorious in the last meeting in New York City in 2014 (66-63).

This will mark Iowa’s 19th appearance in the 21-year history of the Challenge.

Both Iowa and Syracuse finished in sixth place in their respective conference standings a year ago. The Hawkeyes finished the 2018-19 season with a 23-12 overall record and advanced to the Round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament. The Orange posted a 20-14 overall record and lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Last year’s Challenge resulted in a tie, with each conference winning seven games. In the 20 years of the event, 10 of the challenges have been decided by a single game. Since 2009, the Big Ten has won five challenges (2009, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2015), the ACC has won two (2016, 2017), and there have been three ties (2012, 2013, 2018).

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The scheduled game between the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals has been postponed because of rain. It will be made up Aug. 31 as part of a day-night doubleheader.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chris Sale tossed a three-hitter for his third career shutout, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rafael Devers drove in three runs apiece, and the Boston Red Sox trounced the woeful Kansas City Royals 8-0. Sale’s dominant performance was summed up by the eighth inning, when the seven-time All-Star struck out the side on nine pitches _ his second immaculate inning of the year.

BOSTON (AP) — The potential absence of Boston captain Zdeno Chara could be the tipping point in a bruising battle between the Bruins and Blues in the Stanley Cup Final. Beating up opponents and winning the war of attrition has been an ingredient of the Blues’ playoff success. They took advantage of injuries to San Jose’s Erik Karlsson, Joe Pavelski and Tomas Hertl to move on to the final. They are now two victories away from lifting the Stanley Cup as the healthier team.
