NEW YORK CITY — The Iowa Hawkeyes make their first appearance at the Jimmy V Classic tonight with a game against 15th-ranked Duke in Madison Square Garden. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says they were approached about taking part during the offseason.

It begins a tough week that has the Hawkeyes hosting 20th-ranked Iowa State Thursday night.

Seven foot freshman Kyle Filipowski leads the Blue Devils by averaging just over 15 points and nine rebounds per game.

McCaffery does not think the Hawkeyes will have a problem handling the atmosphere in Madison Square Garden.

That will be the second game of the doubleheader. The opener pits 17th-ranked Illinois against #2 Texas.

 

 

CEDAR FALLS — Two teams looking to bounce back from a loss meet in the McLeod Center tonight when the UNI women host North Dakota State. The Panthers are coming off an 80-69 loss at South Dakota State while North Dakota State dropped a 66-65 decision at Central Michigan.

That’s UNI coach Tanya Warren who says battling fatigue will be a key.

Warren says after a trip to Cancun and the road game over the weekend they are happy to have a home game.

The Panthers are 4-3 on the season.

 

 

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Nate Scheelhaase has been promoted from Iowa State’s receivers coach to offensive coordinator.

Scheelhaase replaces Tom Manning, who was fired last week after the Cyclones finished at the bottom of the Big 12 in scoring and total offense during a 4-8 season.

Campbell also announced the firing of fifth-year offensive line coach Jeff Meyers.

Scheelhaase has coached running backs and receivers since he arrived in Ames in 2018. Some of his top players have been 2022 Biletnikoff Award finalist Xavier Hutchinson, two-time consensus All-America running back Breece Hall, All-America running back David Montgomery and All-Big 12 wide receiver Deshaunte Jones.

He previously coached running backs at Illinois, where he was a four-year starting quarterback from 2010-13.
