Hawkeye Basketball

Miller & Deace talk about Iowa’s football news from this past Friday, Big Ten basketball for 2017-2018 and some early Big Ten football win total discussions.

  1. HN’s David Schwartz examines the heated debate about whether or not college athletes deserve to be paid.

  2. Several media outlets and put forth their ‘way too early Top 25’ polls for the next basketball season. Joe Lunardi even has his first Bracketology put together. The Hawkeyes are nowhere to be seen.

  3. Miller and Deace discuss the jobs they believe are the best in the Big Ten basketball landscape and rank them 1-14. Plus, their MLB post season predictions and a few things they never intended to talk about.

  4. Iowa’s Peter Jok won the men’s three-point contest during the Final Four festivities in Phoenix Thursday night.

  5. The Iowa basketball program returns a lot of production next year, but so do several Big Ten teams. I take a look at those teams, beginning with Minnesota, who has the elements to win the Big Ten crown in 2017-2018.

  6. Jon flies solo in this podcast, which takes a look at the returning production for seven teams he believes will fight for next year’s Big Ten Hoops title.  Iowa is most definitely in the mix, but so are several others

Iowa Hawkeye Basketball: Since the University of Iowa recognized men’s basketball as a sport in 1902, the Hawkeyes have had many seasons with impressive stats and high rankings. Those successful seasons have landed them in 22 NCAA tournament appearances, eight Big Ten regular season championships, three Final Fours, two Big Ten tournament championships, and one NCAA national championship. The history of the Iowa Women’s basketball team is much shorter but has been extremely successful as well.

In the 2016-2017 men’s basketball season, coach Fran McCaffery will once again strive to be at the top of the B1G and the national rankings.
