Iowa coach Fran McCaffery is not surprised Keegan Murray had a successful debut this summer. The former Hawkeye All-American was named the MVP of the NBA Summer League after averaging more than 23 points and seven rebounds. He was taken fourth in the draft by the Sacramento Kings.

McCaffery says Murray knows it gets tougher from here.

Murray shot 50 percent from the field in the summer league and 40 percent from three point range.

Beutel to sign with White Sox as Undrafted Free Agent


July 20th, 2022 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa senior Ben Beutel will sign an undrafted free agent contract with the Chicago White Sox organization, it was announced following the conclusion of the 2022 Major League Draft.

Beutel is the fifth Hawkeye from the 2022 team that will continue with a Major League Baseball organization.  Iowa had four players – Adam Mazur, Peyton Williams, Dylan Nedved and Duncan Davitt – selected in the 2022 MLB Draft.

The Davenport, Iowa, native had a breakout senior season in 2022, finishing 3-0 with a 1.47 ERA and four saves in 29 appearances – the most on the team.  The southpaw finished with 41 strikeouts to just six walks over 30 2/3 innings and he allowed just 22 hits.

During the season, Beutel picked off nine base runners, which led to him earning a Rawlings Gold Glove as the best defensive pitcher in Division I college baseball.  He was also an ABCA/Rawlings second-team All-Midwest Region and a second-team All-Big Ten honoree.

Beutel finished his collegiate career with a 4-4 record and a 4.84 ERA.  He had 71 strikeouts over 74 1/3 career innings.

Iowa’s Logan Lee previews the new season


July 20th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

Iowa junior defensive tackle Logan Lee says it was worth the wait to get on the field. After redshirting in 2019, the native of Illinois saw action in only two games in 2020 before bursting on the scene a year ago. Lee started all 14 games and finished with 48 tackles, including three sacks.

Lee says he is working on improving his pass rush this upcoming season.

Lee is part of a defensive line that he says will have even more depth with several new faces.

Iowa opens September third against South Dakota State.

Northern Iowa basketball coach Ben Jacobson updates the health of center Austin Phyfe


July 20th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

Northern Iowa center Austin Phyfe hopes to finish his basketball career on a healthy note. The former Waverly-Shell Rock standout struggled with long term COVID last season and was limited to about 12 minutes per game. He averaged just under five and half points per game.

That’s UNI coach Ben Jacobson who says Phyfe returned, in part, because he would like to play beyond college.

A healthy Phyfe would be a boost for a UNI squad that lost several key players from a team that won the Missouri Valley regular season title.
