The Iowa Hawkeyes will try to make it two in a row in Big Ten play, tonight with a visit to Penn State. The Hawks asre 1-6 in the league race anmd take on a Nittany Lions team that is led by senior guard Talor Battle, who averages just over 20 points per game.
Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says Battle gets things started, but they also have other veteran players and they are probably one of the most athletic teams Penn State coach Ed DeChellis has had. The Nittany Lions are 3-4 in the Big Ten and 10-8 overall.
McCaffrey says DeChellis is one of his better friends in the business, and he looks forward to having a good contest against him.
It is an early 5:30, Iowa time tipoff.
