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.
