It was truly an up and down 2013-2014 season for the Iowa Hawkeyes. After entering the season as a potential sleeper for a Final Four run, the Hawkeyes limped into the NCAA Tournament as an 11 seed before losing in the first round. Looking towards the 2014-2015 campaign, head coach Fran McCaffery will have to replace leading scorer (17 PPG) Roy Devyn Marble, who made his way to the NBA. The Hawkeyes, however, will be returning key contributors Aaron White and Adam Woodbury among others. Carver-Hawkeye Arena was rocking last year even with the up and down times and Fran McCaffery definitely has things heading in the right direction!
The Iowa Hawkeyes operate under Coach Fran McCaffery at the Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City. They have made three Final Four appearances, including most recently in 1980, and have 23 NCAA Tournament appearances, most recently in 2014. They have had 30 players make it to the NBA in their history but only two currently, veteran Reggie Evans and rookie Devin Marble Others include B.J. Armstrong from the Jordan-era Bulls, Ryan Bowen, Ricky Davis, John Johnson, Brad Lohaus, and Fred Brown. Their consistent run of sending on players has slowed recently as many players from Iowa were in the NBA in the 80s compared to just the one now. But their success last season showed they’re on the rise. Make sure to get your Iowa basketball tickets today!
