IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeye men close out the pre-Christmas portion of their schedule at home tonight by hosting Maryland-Baltimore County. The Retrievers enter the game with a record of 5-8.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery who says UMBC will challenge the Hawkeyes with their style of play.

Tipoff at Carver-Hawkeye Arena is scheduled for 7 o’clock with the pre-game starting at 6 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO

 

 

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Atin Wright scored 24 points as Drake beat Alcorn State 92-55 on Tuesday night. Wright added four steals for the Bulldogs (11-1). Kyron Gibson scored 19 points and added six rebounds. Kevin Overton was 4-of-8 shooting, including 2 for 4 from 3-point range, and went 3 for 3 from the foul line to finish with 13 points. The Bulldogs picked up their eighth straight victory.

 

 

AMES — Iowa State women’s coach Bill Fennelly senior guard Emily Ryan will see limited action tonight when the Cyclones host Northern Iowa. The All-Big 12 guard played nine minutes in Sunday’s win over Troy after being sidelined with a lower leg injury suffered during the summer.

Fennelly says Ryan gives the Cyclones a much needed boost of experience.

Tipoff at Hilton Coliseum is scheduled for 6:30 tonight.

 

 

IOWA CITY — Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz says the Hawkeyes won’t have a new offensive coordinator until after the Citrus Bowl against Tennessee. Brian Ferentz will not be returning and the injury plagued Iowa offense finished last in the country by averaging only 239 yards per game.

Ferentz says he has made three calls regarding the job and plans to make one more call this week.

While the coordinator will change the style will not and Ferentz says the Hawkeyes will remain committed to defense and ball control that has helped them average more than nine wins in the last eight full seasons.
