IOWA CITY — With experience and depth the Iowa basketball team opens the new season at home on Friday night against Chicago State. Coach Fran McCaffery says the Hawkeyes will miss the veteran presence of junior forward Nicholas Baer. He will be out up to a month with a broken finger.
With Baer out McCaffery says sophomore Cordell Pemsl will be counted on to bring energy off the bench.
McCaffery says the Hawkeyes need to make major progress on defense.

AMES — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm says the Cyclones will know where they stand after Friday night’s opener. After losing several starters off last year’s team that won the Big 12 Tournament title many consider this a rebuilding year for ISU. It begins with a visit to Missouri.
Prohm says the Cyclones will know their weaknesses after this game.
Prohm knows enough about the Tigers to know that standout freshman Michael Porter junior will be tough to guard.
CEDAR FALLS — For the second straight season Northern Iowa visits North Carolina. The only difference this year is the Tar Heels are the defending national champions.
