The Iowa Hawkeye women head to South Bend, Indiana this weekend for the NCAA Tournament. The Hawkeyes are the ninth seed in the Raliegh Region and play eighth seeded California on Sunday morning.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says they are a very good team and three of their loses came to Stanford. California is 24-9 on the season. She says they are a very athletic deep team that is more of a full court zone pressure team than they see during the Big Ten season.

Bluder says the Hawkeyes must be able to guard the Golden Bears to have a chance and contain the drive to have a chance to win.

Iowa is 19-11 on the season.
