The Iowa and Northern Iowa men’s basketball teams are in Australia and the Panthers opened their six-game tour by downing the Kuliam Pride 105-87. Iowa’s five game tour begins Thursday morning, Iowa time. The Hawkeyes will play a junior national team and four professional teams. Alford says Australia’s junior team won the tournament that the USA group finished fifth in, and beat the USA team by 20 points. Four of the games will be played against what are considered Australian national teams. Iowa coach Steve Alford says the Hawkeyes will be tested by the competition.
