Iowa womens basketball coach Lisa Bluder is hopeful that Jamie printy will be ready for the start of next season. The junior suffered a season ending knee injury last week in a victory at Wisconsin. Bluder says Printy’s surgery went well and she is on the road to recovery.

The Hawkeyes will be at home for two games this week beginning with Thursday’s matchup against Minnesota. She says the Gopher’s record is deceiving as one of the wins is against Ohio State.

Iowa will also host Michigan State on Sunday and with a 6-5 Big Ten record and 14-10 overall mark this week gives the Hawks a chance to boost their post-season hopes.
