The Iowa Hawkeyes return to Big Ten action Wednesday night with a visit to Minnesota. The Hawks are 4-4 in the conference after falling to a late surge by Michigan in a 70-62 loss in Ann Arbor on Saturday. Iowa was whistled for 20-fouls in the contest while Michigan had just ten and that did not go unnoticed by Hawkeye coach Steve Alford. He says there must’ve been a memo that went out that they were shooting two free throws. Alford says this was the first time in a long time the team didn’t get to the bonus in either half. The Hawks are 4-4 at the mid-point of the Big Ten regular season race and Alford says he has been very pleased with the effort as they’re taking a step forward from last year.
