An in-state womens matchup in the UNI-Dome finds the Iowa Hawkeyes visiting U-N-I. Panther coach Tony Dicecco. Dicecco says it’s a great opportunity to play a very good in-state team. He says Iowa presents a lot of problems and he says they haven’t beaten Iowa in 11 years.
He says to have a chance the Panthers must slow down Iowa guard Crystal Smith. He says Smith will be a candidate for player of the year in the Big Ten. At 6-2, the Panthers are off to their best start since 1997. The Hawkeyes are 5-4.
