The Iowa Hawkeyes return to action Thursday with a visit to Indiana. The Hawkeyes are 6-5 in the Big Ten after a 74-59 win over fifth ranked Michigan on Friday night.

 

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Hoosiers got a shot of confidence by halting a seven game losing skid with a stunning victory at sixth ranked Michigan State.

 

A quick turnaround for the Iowa State Cyclones as they visit Oklahoma, tonight, in the Big-12. The Cyclones are coming off a hard fought win at home against Texas that moved their league record to 6-3.
