The Iowa men’s basketball team will be a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, according a current consensus among national prognosticators. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s updated “bracketology” has the Hawkeyes playing No. 11 seed Baylor in the East Region.

MINNEAPOLIS – I have to admit I’d never heard of Charles Buggs, Minnesota’s redshirt freshman forward, until he introduced himself Tuesday at Williams Arena.

MINNEAPOLIS – Depending on your perspective, it was either amazing Minnesota offense or lousy Iowa defense. Or maybe it was just a lot of both.

Iowa men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery has instructed all of his players to “shut down” their Twitter accounts until the conclusion of the season following an ugly exchange between fans and senior forward Zach McCabe. “My overall impressions of social media are negative, for the very reason of what we just experienced,” McCaffery told reporters […]
Iowa linebacker Christian Kirksey spoke to the media at the NFL Combine about staying in school and earning degree. Plus, how did he prepared for the Combine?
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Iowa’s return to basketball relevancy has been a blessing. And a curse. It’s been a significant climb, from dormancy to the top 25, in four seasons under coach Fran McCaffery.
