The Iowa Hawkeyes will try to bounce back from a frustrating loss at Northwestern in a building that has been tough on the visitors. The Hawks will take on Indiana in Assembly Hall and while the Hoosiers have struggled on the road but they have been tough to beat at home. Iowa coach Steve Alford expects the Hoosiers to be ready. He says Indiana can tie for the conference lead with a win. Alford says the only loses in Bloomington have been to U-Conn and Duke, so he says they’re fully preparing for a war.
Iowa is 7-3 in the Big Ten and Alford says they are breaking down the final six games of the regular season into a pair of three game series. They have Indiana, Michigan State and Minnesota, and then he says they have a “bye” week before Illinois, Penn State and Wisconsin.
Alford says they have two three-game seasons and they have to win those series to have a chance to win the conference. Alford says that’s their mindset and then everything else will take care of itself.
