IOWA CITY — Iowa women’s basketball junior guard Caitlin Clark says the Hawkeyes are motivated by an early exit in the NCAA Tournament. The Hawks were stunned by Creighton in the second round at home.

Clark says the Hawkeyes don’t mind the lofty expectations.

Iowa was 24-8 overall last season and 14-4 in the Big Ten.




CEDAR FALLS — Northern Iowa basketball coach Ben Jacobson says the Panthers have focused on the team aspect this summer. UNI lost its top three scorers from last year’s team that won the Missouri Valley Conference regular season title. Valley player of the year AJ Green signed with the Milwaukee Bucks and second leading scorer Noah Carter has transferred to Missouri.

Nearly the entire roster next season will be freshmen and sophomores. The lone senior is center Austin Phyfe.

Jacobson says former North Scott standout Tytan Anderson is expected to take over the role Carter provided.

UNI last year was 20-12 and 14-4 in the conference.




DES MOINES — Depth and experience will be strengths for the Drake basketball team next season. The Bulldogs return their top four scorers from last year’s team.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries. Several of the seniors are entering their fifth or even sixth season and in the age of the transfer portal the Bulldogs have been able to maintain a nucleus that has led the program to four straight 20-win seasons.

Two freshmen will try to play their way into the rotation.

Drake last year was 25-11.
