A Marshalltown man says he had no role in Juri Hubalek’s decision to attend Iowa State and an investigation is not needed. Leon Schade and his wife helped Hubalek when he traveled to Marshalltown Community College from the Czech Republic to play basketball. That included the use of a car. I-S-U officials are trying to find out if any NCAA violations occurred. Schade says they let him borrow their car while they were out of town.
Schade had Iowa State season tickets years ago but he is a football season ticket holder at the University of Iowa. Schade says at the time he wanted to be sure that no violations occurred so he called former Cyclone assistant coach Damon Archibald. He says he told him the situation and says they wanted to continue to do things for Hubalek, and didn’t think it would be a problem since they are Hawkeye supporters.
Barb Burrows is Provost at Marshalltown Community College and says the school has been careful to follow the rules. Burrows says while Hubalek attended MCC there were no violations.
