It’s senior night in Iowa City as the Iowa Hawkeye women host Illinois. Five seniors will be honored but it may not be their final game in Carver-Hawkeye. The school will host the opening two rounds of the NCAA Tournament and at 18-9 overall the Hawks have a good shot at landing a spot in the field.
Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says it will be tough to say goodbye to the seniors, but she says it’s helpful to know they will likely be back in Carver for a few more games.
The Hawkeyes have won four straight and stand 11-5 in the Big Ten while the Illini are 4-12 in conference play. Bluder says two of those wins in conference are against Indiana, a team Iowa has split with. She says they will do the senior ceremony after the game to keep the team focused.
