Iowa coach Todd Lickliter wants to see a more consistent effort from the Hawkeyes. After showing signs of progress over a two week span the Hawks were dominated from start to finish in a 60-46 at Michigan and now take a 2-7 Big Ten record into tomorrow night’s game at home against Illinois.
Likcliter says it was frustrating as its his responsibility to establish constant habits and to insist upon their commitment to them, and they weren’t able to do that Saturday.
Lickliter says fatigue may have been an issue on Sunday. It was Iowa’s third game in a week. He says playing a Sunday to a Saturday with a road game that was emotional, you don’t get a break and are constantly preparing. Lickliter says he can see where the team would be flat. He says he can’t accept that as a coach, but can understand it.
