TOUGH LOSS: Hawks Fall To Northwestern

Iowa struggled in the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis and that will leave Hawk fans sweating this Selection Sunday.

Players wore P-MAC shirts in warm up. It’s a show of support for Coach Fran McCaffery’s son Patrick who is getting a tumor removed from his thyroid next week. Ptrick was in Indianapolis to cheer on the Hawks.

After a rough end to the regular season Iowa was hoping to get its swagger back in the conference tournament.

It’s tied at the break. Northwestern starts the second half on a 10-3 run. Iowa plays tough defense at crunch time, but Northwestern keeps Iowa on the ropes. The Wildcats win, 67-62.

Selection Sunday for the NCAA tournament is this weekend. The Hawkeyes should still be in the tournament, despite this loss.
