IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeyes could really use a marquee win and they get another chance on Friday night when they host fifth ranked Michigan. The Hawkeyes are 5-5 in the Big Ten and coach Fran McCaffery says it will take a complete effort to get the win.

McCaffery says rebounding and defense will be two huge factors.

McCaffery believes Friday nights should be about high school basketball. The Big Ten’s new television deal with FOX means the league is playing on Friday nights for the first time this season.

Tipoff tonight is scheduled for 6:00, with the pre-game starting at 5 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO

 

 

ANN ARBOR — The University of Iowa women’s basketball team’s road game with Michigan, originally scheduled for Thursday, has been rescheduled for this morning at 11:00 a.m., Iowa time.

The postponement was due to continuing inclement weather and the University of Michigan remaining closed until early Friday morning.

The 13th ranked Hawkeyes are 7-2 in the Big Ten and will take a five game winning streak into Friday’s game.

 

 

MASON CITY — The road to the state wrestling tournament starts tomorrow for wrestlers in Classes 1A and 2A with sectional wrestling tournaments.
