Food for Thought

Hawkeyes win overtime

Talk about overcoming adversity. The Iowa Hawkeyes did just that in last week's 73-69 overtime win against Wisconsin.
First you have the Hawks' best big man (maybe) Cyrus Tate sitting out his second straight game with a badly sprained ankle. Then you have your starting point guard, Jeff Peterson, playing with a broken bone in his left hand. Jake Kelly, who starts at off guard, has a dislocated finger in both hands and to top it off Anthony Tucker, who led the team in scoring early on, is declared academically ineligible before the game.
