Iowa basketball coach Todd Lickliter talked about the medical procedure he underwent in an interview prior to the U.N.I. game. Lickliter says he had to have a stent put into his carotid artery after suffering headaches.
Lickliter says everyone he talked to made it obvious he had to have the surgery and the University of Iowa Hopsitals were the place to have the surgery. Lickliter says he is on the mend.
Lickliter says he is thankful for the prayers of everyone as he has heard from a lot of people who were praying for him. He says those prayers meant a lot to him and his family. Lickliter will miss the Hawkeyes game against Iowa State Friday, but hopes to be back next week.
