This column starts with something sad and disturbing that happened March 3, 2010, in Madison, Wis. The Iowa men’s basketball team basically rolled over and died on that day, losing 67-40 against Wisconsin. I’ll never forget the look of helplessness on Matt Gatens’ face as he emerged from the locker room to be interviewed about […]
We asked readers what they would change to improve the Iowa men’s basketball program. The Hawkeyes started the season in promising fashion before losing seven of their last eight. === First of all, let me say as an Iowa grad, I have been a lifelong fan.

Junior college forward Willie Atwood knows very little about the Iowa men’s basketball program or the University of Iowa, but he also appreciates feeling wanted.
Point guard Trey Dickerson has said since committing to the Iowa basketball team on March 8 that he and fellow junior-college recruit Willie Atwood are serious about playing together at the same Division I school.

There hasn’t been a public explanation why Iowa went from 19-6 to 20-13, ending with […]
Devyn Marble attempted 436 field goals as a senior, 191 more than anyone else on the Iowa basketball team. As the page turns to 2014-15, someone’s got to take those shots. And someone has to step up and score some of the 17 points a game Marble left behind when the season ended in the […]

Coach McCaffery said that the family will visit with doctors as soon as possible to determine treatment for his son, who is in seventh grade […]

The son of Iowa men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery had the surgery Wednesday morning. Tests are being done to determine whether the tumor […]
