IOWA CITY — Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery says the Hawkeyes have pushed their foreign trip to next year. The Hawkeyes were in line to go overseas this summer and with several key players gone from last year’s team it would have been perfect timing.

McCaffery says there was a travel ban until August first and no guarantees it would change.
