The Iowa basketball team has not won the Big Ten Conference regular season title since 1979 but the fifth ranked Hawkeyes could take a big step toward ending that dry spell, tonight, when they visit Indiana.
The Hawkeyes have sole possession of the league lead with a 10-1 record and visit a Hoosier team that is a game back at 9-2.
“I’m not even thinking about that right now”, said Hawkeye coach Fran McCaffery. “I am just thinking about trying to win Thursday night.”
Defense will be a key. Indiana averages 84 points per game and is shooting 51 percent from the field.
“If you are shooting those kinds of numbers you are getting layups. They are a hard team to guard.”
It will be an 8:05 p.m. tip off in Assembly Hall.
