IOWA CITY, Ia. Josh Oglesby said hello Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, and veteran official Ed Hightower said goodbye. Oglesby, who missed Iowa’s first 12 games after breaking a bone in his right foot on Nov. 6, made his first four 3-point attempts in Sunday’s 86-61 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff before an announced sellout crowd of 15,400 […]
