The Iowa Hawkeye baseball team opens the Big Ten tournament in Columbus, Ohio, against Purdue on Wednesday afternoon. The Hawkeyes are the fourth seed after winning seven of their last eight games and after a wide open regular season race coach Jack Dahm feels the tournament will be no different.
Dahm says they try to play like they are playing for a championship every day, so they will go to the short game right away if needed. He says a lot of teams don’t do that. Dahm says they are confident, though they will have a tough task against Purdue.
The Hawkeyes just swept Purdue in a three game series last weekend in Iowa City. Dahm says he’d rather be in the situation where they’ve just won three games against a team, instead of having lost three games. He says the team feels good and ready to go up against them.
