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

Former Virginia defensive coordinator Jim Reid is reportedly interviewing at Iowa today. The interview was first reported over the weekend by 247Sports. On Friday night, FootballScoop.com tweeted that Reid — along with former Colorado receivers coach Bobby Kennedy — “will likely join the staff.” Reid was fired Dec. 2 as associate head coach and defensive coordinator at Virginia; the Cavaliers went 4-8 in 2012. Reid led the Cavaliers to a No. 31 national ranking in total defense at 353 yards per game. The question is where does Reid fit in on the Iowa coaching staff.

For a squad that has NCAA Tournament aspirations come March, a loss on Thursday would have virtually eliminated the Hawkeyes from that conversation.

Although sluggish at times, the Hawkeyes (14-7, 3-5 Big Ten) were able to hold off the Nittany Lions (8-13, 0-9) in the second half and win, 76-67, in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. So, Iowa succeeded at remaining relevant. Even if it is only … Continued

Carver-Hawkeye Arena was rocking, the student section was in full force. The nearly sell-out crowd of 15,127 turned the place into a Black and Gold ruckus. Probably the loudest Carver has been in four years. Correction, the loudest it has been in four years. In a game that featured a multitude of runs and many momentum swings, Iowa forgot about its atrocious 3-point shooting in the first half, out-rebounded the best rebounding team in the nation, and ultimately defeated Iowa State. Down 36-35 at the break, the Hawkeyes (8-2) started off the second half on a 6-0 run, took the … Continued

The Big Ten Conference has added another school. The University of Maryland will join the Big Ten on July 1, 2014. The Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors unanimously approved the addition Monday morning, as Maryland’s athletic teams will begin competition in all sports for the 2014-15 academic year. Maryland president Wallace D. Loh and director of athletics Kevin Anderson were instrumental in the move. Loh is a former provost at the University of Iowa. The school submitted a written application to join the Big Ten on Monday, which had to be approved by at least 70 percent of the Big Ten Council … Continued
