IOWA CITY — Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery says junior point guard Jordan Bohannon may play in Thursday night’s season opener against Missouri-Kansas City. Bohannon missed Sunday’s exhibition game for what McCaffery called a “bad bruise”.

McCaffery believes this team can become more consistent from the perimeter.

IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeyes say they remain motivated for the final three games of the season. Two straight heartbreaking road losses ended their Big Ten Title hopes and they now get set to host west division leader Northwestern.
That’s quarterback Nate Stanley. Safety Amani Hooker says there is no quit in this team.
Running back Ivory Kelly-Martin says while the Wildcats are known for offense it is their defense that has led them to the top of the division.
Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 2:30, with the pre-game starting at 12:30 on AM-1300 KGLO.
