Hawkeye women visit the University Hospital

One of the fun parts of covering the Iowa Hawkeyes is visiting the University of Iowa’s Children’s Hospital with the women’s basketball team.
Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder does a great job of getting her team involved in the community.
Last summer they spent at least one day helping sandbag when the Flood of 2008 hit and destroyed so much property on campus, in Iowa City and Coralville.
The sandbags were heavy and it was pretty messy work, but the players and the coaches pitched in and enjoyed helping out.

Hawk hoops struggle

Last Thursday was another challenging night for Hawkeye fans. Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams played at the same time.
The men were at home playing Minnesota while the women were on the road playing Purdue.
The men’s game was on ESPN2, the Women’s on the Big Ten Network and the BCS championship, Florida-Oklahoma, was on Fox.
I didn’t want to watch both Iowa games at the same time so I watched the men live and taped the women’s game.
They both lost so that was not a fun night, plus I was rooting for Bob Stoops and Oklahoma and they lost.
The women split.
