UI Men Split Last Home Games

IOWA CITY– After losing a heartbreaker 60-58 to Ohio State last week, the Hawkeyes won a 75-67 double-overtime heartwarmer last Saturday over Penn State.
One could only wonder how much better Iowa would have been if Cyrus Tate wouldn’t have gotten hurt.
Big Cy went down January 8 against Minnesota with Iowa leading by 13 points. The Gophers came back and beat the Hawks, 52-49.
With Cy out, Iowa was 2-7, since he’s been back they are 2-5 but Jeff Peterson has missed the last six games.

Iowa Women finish 21-10

IOWA CITY– The Hawkeyes won their first game, 79-64, over Minnesota in the Big Ten tournament with balanced scoring, winning the rebound battle 40-31, and taking care of the ball with only 11 turnovers.
“There’s no superstars on this team,” said Iowa coach Lisa Bluder. “They’re all great players. They get along as you can tell on the floor. They really pass the ball and are genially happy about each other's success.”
I’m not sure if I agree with the coach.
Iowa has three super seniors that have led the way all season and they did just that with their 21st win of the season.

Hawkeye wrestlers: Big Ten Champs

IOWA CITY– For the second year in a row, the Hawkeye wrestling team won the Big Ten tournament championship at University Park, Pennsylvania.
One hundred and forty-one points, two champions and nine will go to the NCAA championships in two weeks.
I’ll look at the good, the bad and the ugly of Iowa’s 33rd Big Ten title.
The good or great would have to be Brent Metcalf. Three pins, including one in the championship match, a major decision, being voted the Outstanding Wrestler for the second straight year, 33-0 for the year, 65 straight victories… and he’s only a junior.
