The Iowa baseball team will be the fourth seed in this week’s Big Ten Tournament in Ann Arbor,Michigan. The Hawkeyes are 31-21 overall and closed out with a 17-13 record in the Big Ten. They open against Illinois on Wednesday afternoon.
Iowa coach Jack Dahm says the next step for the program is to play well in the postseason. The team lost two ballgames in their last tourney appearance two years ago. He says they don’t want to just be happy to be there.
Dahm says while the program has taken some big strides the conference tournament offers a new challenge. He says you have to be able to win in the postseason to become a real confident program.
Dahm says Michigan is clearly the favorite but ever team has had a stretch that sows they are capable. Iowa roared into contention midway through the conference race on the strength of a 12-game win streak. He says every team had winning streaks, just like his team did. Dahm says Penn State is the hottest team in the conference right now.
Minnesota is the second seed in the tournament.
