The Hawkeye men’s basketball team had a nine-day layoff before opening the Big Ten season at home against Nebraska, Tuesday, Dec. 31.
In the Hawkeyes’ last game, which was at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Dec. 22, they rolled over Arkansas Pine-Bluff, 86-61, and raised their record to 11-2.
It was great to see Josh Oglesby back. The 6-6 sharp shooter from Cedar Rapids hit his first four shots, all 3-pointers and scored 13 points. He played 20 minutes, had two rebounds, two assists and two steals.
