Hawkeye baseball plays three against Nittany Lions. The Iowa Hawkeye basball team will take on Penn State this weekend at Duane Banks Field in three games on Friday (6:05), Saturday (2:05), and Sunday (12:00). Iowa is currently in last place in the Big Ten standings, but they have a chance to start climbing the ladder, as PSU holds a 7-8 Big Ten record.

Softball against PSU too.  Saturday and Sunday will see the slumping Hawkeye softball team try to snap a seven game losing streak.  In the last three games the Hawks have lost by a combined score of 19-4.  PSU come to Bob Perle Softball Field with a 6-7-1 mark in conference play.


Off Campus:

Track and Field travels north.  Members of the Iowa track and field team will travel to the Messersmith Invitational on Friday in Cedar Falls.  Iowa is coming off a Drake Relays in which they crowned two event champions.

Watch and Listen:

Cubs in a divisional match-up.   The Chicago Cubs will return from their road trip, in which they went 4-3, to take on the Cincinatti Reds.  With just a 14-16 record the Cubs are 2.5 games out of the division lead, while the Red’s 15-15 mark puts them at 1.5 under.  The games are scheduled for Friday at 1:20, Saturday at noon, and Sunday at 1:10. 

NBA continues to sizzle.  The Lakers are on the rope, the  Bulls tied it up, and the Celtics returns to Boston to try to bounce back from a 2-0 defecit.  The Bulls and Hawks go again on Friday at 6:00, while the Lakers and Mavs go later that night.  Oklahoma City takes on Memphis at 4:00 on Saturday and the Celtics will welcome the Heat at 7:00.
