Hawkeyes look forward

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

This is the second part of a two-part story of the Hawkeyes men’s basketball team with assistant coach Kirk Speraw.
Last week we talked about the season, the Big Ten Tournament and the NCAA tournament, which was the first time since 2006 that the Hawks made the big dance.
Iowa had three seniors lead the way and they helped the Hawkeyes win 53 home games in their four-year career.
The 53 wins ties for fourth in program history.
Iowa’s 1988, 2008 and 2009 seniors won 54 home games.
That stat kind of surprised me.
