BLOOMINGTON — Indiana outscored Iowa 8-0 to finish the game in a 74-68 win in Bloomington. The Hawkeyes had roared back from a 17-point first half deficit to lead it late.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Hawkeyes survived a bad start to make a run in the second half.

The Hoosiers outrebounded the Hawkeyes 45-32 and had several key offensive rebounds at crunch time. Benn Krikke and Owen Freeman combined for only five rebounds.

Payton Sandfort led Iowa with 26 points. The Hawkeyes are 4-6 in the Big Ten and host Ohio State Friday night.

Tipoff on Friday night is scheduled for 6 o’clock




DES MOINES — The Drake men take an 8-2 Missouri Valley Conference record into tonight’s game at home against Valparaiso. The Bulldogs won the first meeting 83-65 on the road back in late November. Under first year coach Roger Powell the Beacons are 2-8 in the Valley and 6-15 overall.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who says this a much more experienced Valpo team than the one they played in November.

Drake is 17-4 overall




CEDAR FALLS — The Northern Iowa men take a 6-4 Missouri Valley Conference record on the road to Bradley tonight. The Braves had a nine game win streak snapped last Saturday with an overtime loss at Valley leader Indiana State and Panther coach Ben Jacobson says the return from injury of leading scorer Connor Hickman has been a factor.

Jacobson says Bradley’s size makes them tough defensively at the rim.

Bradley is 7-3 in the Valley.





IOWA CITY — The 3rd-ranked Iowa Hawkeye women will be on the road tonight to visit Northwestern. It begins a week that will find the Hawkeyes visiting Maryland Saturday night.

That’s Iowa coach Lisa Bluder. It is a rebuilding year for Northwestern. The Wildcats feature several new players and are 2-7 in the Big Ten and 7-13 overall.

You can hear the Iowa-Northwestern game on AM-1300 KGLO tonight starting with the pre-game at 6:45.





ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — The Big Ten plans to stick with a 20-game conference schedule for men’s basketball and an 18-game schedule for women’s basketball when the league expands to 18 teams next year. The league also announced Tuesday that 15 of the 18 members will qualify for the Big Ten men’s and women’s basketball tournaments once Southern California, UCLA, Oregon and Washington arrive from the Pac-12. The Big Ten currently allows all 14 of its members to participate in the conference tournaments.
