Iowa snaps four-game skid to Purdue, 70-55

The last time an Iowa men’s basketball team beat Purdue, Jordan Bohannon was a wide-eyed freshman who was still cementing his role into the starting lineup for an extremely young Iowa team in the winter of 2017. Iowa beat #17 Purdue 83-78 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena in January of 2017. Four years later, the Hawkeyes came back into Carver-Hawkeye Arena with a ranking of #4 in the country, looking to snap a four-game losing streak against Matt Painter’s Boilermakers. In fact, the Hawkeyes haven’t come close to beating Purdue in the four meetings since January 2017, with an average margin of … Continued

The (8-2) Iowa Hawkeyes and the Alcorn State Braves (1-6) tipped off tonight inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Aaron White bobble head night. Entering tonight’s game, the Hawkeyes, as a 30-point favorite, looked to get their 400th win inside Carver-Hawkeye, and they did just that, defeating the Braves 67-44. Aaron White did what he normally does, leading the Hawkeyes in scoring with 15 points, getting nine of those points from the free throw line. “He’s got an incredible ability to get there in a variety of different ways,” head coach Fran McCaffery said. “We can post him up, we can get him … Continued

IOWA CITY- After traveling to Chapel Hill, N.C. and upsetting the 12th ranked Tar Heels on the road, the Iowa Hawkeyes (6-2) looked to win their 5th straight when the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Retrievers (0-7) visited Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Sparked by Peter Jok’s two three pointers and an Aaron White thunderous dunk, Iowa got out to a 20 to 6 lead, which came on a 20-0 Hawkeye run. Iowa’s stout defense forced the Retrievers into 15 first half turnovers and the Hawkeyes took advantage, scoring 23 of their 48 first half points off of the Retriever’s mistakes. Iowa took a … Continued

IOWA CITY, Iowa–The 14th ranked Wisconsin Badgers traveled to Kinnick Stadium Saturday to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes, not only for the rights to the Heartland Trophy, but also for a shot to represent the Big Ten West in Indianapolis at the Big Ten title game. Although Iowa outscored Wisconsin 21 to 10 in the second half, the Hawkeyes fell short, losing 26-24. With a victory over rival Minnesota next week, Wisconsin will clinch the Big Ten West Title. The biggest difference in this game was the play of Melvin Gordon, the dynamic Badger back who rushed for 200 yards … Continued

The Iowa Hawkeye Men’s basketball season tips off in a month. It seems crazy, I know. If you paid any attention at all to last season, you’re aware of the fact that Iowa struggled down the stretch. Losing seven of their last eight games, which includes falling to Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Before collapsing late, Iowa was ranked in the top ten in the country and was just outside the lead in the Big Ten. What happened? “We didn’t defend,” Iowa head basketball coach Fran McCaffery said, who his entering his fifth year as the … Continued

The Iowa Hawkeyes (3-1) and the Purdue Boilermakers (2-2) open up Big Ten conference play inside Ross-Ade Stadium at noon ET today. There are a few headlines that will be interesting to see how things unfold for the Hawkeyes. Like, will sophomore quarterback C.J. Beathard really start today for the Hawkeyes? We think so, but we’ll see. If he does start, will he play well enough to keep the starting job over injured QB Jake Rudock? Rumor has it Iowa running back Damon Bullock didn’t make the trip. Obviously we don’t know until the game starts. I have yet to … Continued

At this point, everybody knows about the crazy week that took place in Iowa City. All Big Ten left tackle Brandon Scherff had his knee scoped, and defensive end Drew Ott was involved in a scooter accident. All week there were question in the air whether these two key contributors would be able to play against the Iowa State Cyclones, if at all for the Hawkeyes. At 2:40 pm Saturday, when the 70,858 fans in attendance at Kinnick Stadium saw those two take the field to Back in Black, that crazy week tuned into optimism. The Hawkeye offense lead by … Continued
