IOWA CITY — The Iowa men’s basketball game that was scheduled for Thursday night at Ohio State was postponed. A statement from the Iowa athletic department said that the postponement was due to travel cancellations and inclement weather in Columbus Ohio, and that both teams will work with the Big Ten Conference on a potential date to reschedule the game. Iowa hosts Minnesota on Sunday afternoon.


AMES — The 20th-ranked Iowa State Cyclones are on the road Saturday afternoon in the Big 12 to face 23rd-ranked Texas. The Cyclones beat the Longhorns 79-70 in Ames back on January 15th.

That’s ISU coach T.J.Otzelberger who says ball pressure remains the biggest key for his team on defense.

At 3-6, the Cyclones have some work to do to climb out of the bottom half of the Big 12 race.



DES MOINES — Drake hosts Northern Iowa Saturday afternoon in a key Missouri Valley Conference showdown. The Bulldogs are tied at the top of the Valley standings with Loyola with an 8-2 record and two weeks ago in Cedar Falls erased a late 10 point deficit to beat the Panthers in overtime.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who hopes a big crowd will give the Bulldogs a homecourt advantage.

UNI is 8-3 and a with a victory the Panthers would be in the thick of the title chase.

Panther coach Ben Jacobson. Tipoff at the Knapp Center in Des Moines is scheduled for 5 o’clock on Saturday afternoon.



MADISON, WISCONSIN — The 21st-ranked Iowa Hawkeye women closed the first half with a 10-0 run and beat Wisconsin 84-50 in Madison. Caitlin Clark had another triple-double with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

That’s Iowa coach Lisa Bluder. The Hawkeyes were without injured starters McKenna Warnock and Gabbie Marshall. Bluder is not sure if they will be available Sunday at 6th-ranked Michigan.

Iowa is 9-2 in the Big Ten
