Iowa coach Steve Alford says the Hawkeyes have a realistic shot at the NCAA Tournament. Iowa is 16-7 overall and 4-6 in the Big Ten heading into Wednesday night’s game at Purdue. Also, junior forward Greg Brunner has been named the Big Ten Conference “player of the week”. The native of Charles City averaged just over 21-points and five rebounds as the Hawkeyes lost at 20th ranked Wisconsin 72-69 and beat Northwestern 64-54 in Iowa City.
