The Iowa Hawkeye men open their season at home Friday night against Hampton. This will not be your typical cupcake opener according to coach Fran McCaffery as Hampton won 18 game last year and he says they are quick, aggressive and experienced.
McCaffery says Hampton has four starters back from last year’s team that includes double figure scorers. He expects a physical game from a team that is aggressive and expects to win their league.
McCaffery says Hampton’s players won’t be intimidated by playing on the road and will expect to have a good chance of winning the game.
