IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The men’s basketball game between Iowa and Northwestern scheduled for Wednesday in Iowa City will not be played due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols within the Northwestern program. The two schools will work with the Big Ten to reschedule the game. All distributed tickets for the Northwestern-Iowa contest will be valid for the new date and time, if the game is able to be rescheduled. Iowa next plays at Ohio State on Saturday. Northwestern is scheduled to play Wisconsin at home Saturday.



IOWA CITY — The Iowa men’s basketball game tonight was postponed, but the premiere of a documentary about a Hawkeye legend will still be shown on the Big Ten Network. The one hour documentary chronicles the life of Hawkeye star Chris Street and his death in a car accident 30 years ago. The documentary will now air on the network following tonight’s Ohio State-Nebraska basketball game at approximately 8 o’clock. The documentary includes how the Iowa team responded with an upset win over Michigan in their first game back on the court after Street’s death. That game from January 31st of 1993 will be replayed on the network following the documentary.


EAST LANSING — The 10th-ranked Iowa Hawkeye women take a three game winning streak on the road to Michigan State tonight. The Hawkeyes are connecting more from three point range and have averaged more than 98 points the last three games.

That’s Iowa coach Lisa Bluder who says they need to take care of the ball against the Spartan full court press.

The Hawkeyes have won six of the last eight in the series but their last victory in the Breslin Center was back in 2018.

Iowa is 6-1 in the Big Ten and 14-4 overall. You can hear the Iowa-Michigan State game on AM-1300 KGLO tonight starting with the pre-game at 5:45 with the tipoff scheduled for 6 o’clock.
