No. 25 Iowa women visit Minnesota Thursday night


January 20th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

It will be a homecoming of sorts for Iowa center Monica Czinano tonight (Thursday night) when the 25th ranked Hawkeye women visit Minnesota. Czinano grew up near the Twin Cities and her sister, Maggie, is guard for the Gophers.

Czinano says while a lot of family and friends will be in Williams Arena she is trying to stay focused on the game.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder is concerned about guarding a Minnesota team that is connecting on nearly 40 percent from three point range.

Iowa falls late at Rutgers 48-46


January 20th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

Iowa’s three game win streak was snapped at Rutgers, Wednesday night. Ron Harper Junior gave the Scarlet Knights the 48-46 lead with a pair of free throws with two seconds remaining. It capped a dreadful shooting night for the Hawks who made only 17 of 61 shots.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The teams combined to commit 31 fouls and make just 35 field goals.

Keegan Murray led Iowa with 13 points and 13 rebounds and was whistled for a foul while guarding Harper in the final seconds.

No. 7 Iowa State women fall to No. 15 Texas


January 20th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

The seventh ranked Iowa State women were outscored 14-4 in the third quarter, Wednesday, as the shorthanded Cyclones lost to 15th ranked Texas 66-48 in Ames. ISU was without Ashley and Aubrey Joens, who were out due to COVID protocols.

That’s Cyclone coach Bill Fennelly. With the Joens sisters out the Cyclones struggled on offense and made only 12 of 43 shots in the game.

Fennelly says Texas dominated the game with defense.

The Cyclones are 16-2 overall and 5-1 in the Big 12.

Iowa-Indiana women’s basketball postponed


January 19th, 2022 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa women’s basketball game against Indiana on Sunday, Jan. 23 inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa, has been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols within the Indiana program.

Both programs will actively work with the Big Ten Conference to find a rescheduled date to play the game.

Per the amended Big Ten Conference 2021-22 Forfeiture Guidelines, this game will be postponed and the Conference office will coordinate the rescheduling process with both schools. If the game is not able to be rescheduled, it would count as a “no contest” for both teams.

Fans in possession of tickets for Sunday’s game should hold on to them.  If a replacement opponent is found, these tickets will be good for a replacement game Sunday.  If no replacement game is found, these tickets will be good for a possible make-up game with Indiana.  If there is a replacement game Sunday, season ticket holders will automatically be issued new tickets for a possible make-up date with Indiana.

The Hawkeyes head to Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Thursday, Jan. 20 to take on the Minnesota Gophers inside Williams Arena. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. (CT) on B1G Network.

Iowa’s Fran McCaffery on power rankings


January 19th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says he is not focused on the power rankings as the Hawkeyes get set to visit Rutgers tonight (Wednesday night). Iowa is just outside the AP Poll and has a lofty spot in both the NET and kenpom rankings. McCaffery says the only thing that matters is to continue winning.

McCaffery says the power rankings don’t matter until March.

Iowa is 14-4 overall and 3-3 in the Big Ten.

Northern Iowa men visit Valparaiso Wednesday night


January 19th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

The UNI Panthers put their five game winning streak on the line tonight (Wednesday night), at Valparaiso. The Panthers hammered the Beacons 92-65 in Cedar Falls back on January fifth.

That’s UNI coach Ben Jacobson does not think his players are expecting the same type of game.

Jacobson says his players expect a much tougher game.

Valparaiso coach Matt Lottich says the Panthers are rolling.

Lottich says the Panthers overcame a slow start to the season.

No. 15 Iowa State falls at No. 18 Texas Tech


January 18th, 2022 by Chris Parks

That’s ISU coach T.J. Otzelberger. Tech made 25 of 29 free throws in the second half.

The Cyclones trailed 26-23 at halftime before Tech took charge.
