With the start of college basketball season on the horizon, we’ll be taking a long look at the conference at large as well as Indiana’s roster over the next month. Today, we continue our look at the Big Ten with the Iowa Hawkeyes.
In a Big Ten that could have as many as eight or nine teams competing for a spot in the NCAA tournament, Iowa is one of the most difficult teams to forecast.

The third college basketball yearbook released this fall, The Sporting News college basketball preview magazine, hit newsstands today.

After four years at Michigan, he waited to find out if there would be a scholarship for his fifth year of eligibility. He waited some more, but eventually it became clear he had to explore other options.
