The Iowa Hawkeye baseball team opens the Big Ten Tournament in Omaha Wednesday afternoon by playing regular season champion Indiana. The eighth seeded Hawkeyes were swept by the top seeded Hoosiers to open Big Ten play.

Iowa coach Rick Heller:

 

The Hawkeyes dropped their final five Big Ten games and Heller says most of their problems have been pitching.

 

Heller hopes the spacious dimensions of TD Ameritrade Park is an advantage against the Big Ten’s top hitting team in Indiana.

 

The Hawkeyes finished the regular season 30-22.

Iowa has placed its volleyball coach on leave.

Todd Kimm reports:

 

Iowa athletic director Gary Barta calls it a significant violation.

 

Barta says the violation was first reported by a former student athlete. The school has notified the NCAA of the violation and the investigation is ongoing.

 

Barta has named associate head coach Vicki Brown as interim coach.

 

Shymansky has been the Iowa coach for five years and led the Hawkeyes to a 15-16 record this past season. His 2019 recruiting class is ranked 24th nationally, the highest even for the program.
