Hawk men’s free fall is over

Hawk Talk

The Hawkeye men had two games last week, losing at Minnesota, 86-82, Wednesday night.
They broke their six-game losing streak with a 77-70 win at home last Sunday against Northwestern.
When the Gophers started the game with a 22-2 run, you knew the Hawks were in trouble.
Iowa was outscored 31-19 at half.
I have to give the Hawks some credit as they won the second half, 63-55, came within two, 84-82 with three seconds left, but a loss is still a loss.
It didn’t help that Jordon Bohannon was shut-out for the first time this season and Tyler Cook had six points.

Big road win for Hawk women

Hawk Talk

The Iowa women had two games last week, picking up an overtime win at Rutgers, 77-66, and finishing the regular season with a win at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, 75-62, over Indiana.
The Hawk win at Rutgers was a major gut check.
Iowa jumped out early, leading 13-4 at the end of the first quarter, scored only six points in the second quarter and trailed at half, 25-19.
The Scarlet Knights led by as many as 11 in the third quarter but the Hawkeyes went to work in the fourth.

Yours, ours and mine

Since my husband and I were married on a March Saturday all those many years ago, I tend to think of weddings every year when the month rolls around again. It ‘s one of the few things that make the month of March bearable, as about the only other things going for it are wind, slush and runny noses. When I think of weddings, though, I think of them as beginnings rather than the glorious result of months of planning and daunting expenses.
