As Big Ten members, the student athletes of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes set out to annihilate competition with all the ardor sportsmanship allows. Voted Big Ten Coach of the Year, Lisa Bluder and her sagacious leadership have led to a four-year winning-record streak for the women’s basketball team, home to rigorous players such as junior center Morgan Johnson, who set the school record for blocks last season. Second-year Head Coach Fran McCaffery helms the men’s squad as they hope to whip past the Wisconsin Badgers’ defense and solve a geometry problem using the three-point line after each basket. Senior guard and co-captain Matt Gatens boasts the Iowa single-season record for free-throw percentage and most stylish sneaker tongue, and sophomore forward Melsahn Basabe is the first Big Ten player in more than 15 years to achieve at least 20 points, 10 rebounds, and five blocks in a single game.

All events take place in the newly renovated Carver-Hawkeye Arena, one of the largest university-owned facilities in the country. A competitive boon for its home teams, the arena has granted both men’s and women’s basketball a lifetime 77% winning percentage and enough room to build a Gatorade wave pool.

University of Iowa Athletics

The University of Iowa Athletics program spans more than a century of tradition, including a venerated football team founded in 1889 as well as prodigiously successful wrestling and basketball programs. Consistently ranked among the top 25 college stadiums in the nation for attendance, Kinnick Stadium regularly houses more than 70,000 spectators in its stands during home football games. The venue takes its name from Iowa football legend Nile Kinnick, who in 1939 commemorated his Heisman Trophy win by painting himself bronze and dashing across the field.

Since the inauguration of Carver-Hawkeye Arena in 1983, the men's and women's basketball teams have posted .777 winning percentages. One of the largest university-owned facilities in the nation, Carver-Hawkeye packs in more than 15,000 fans for events that have included Big Ten and NCAA Championships as well as an exhibition match featuring the 1984 Olympic men's basketball team. The stadium also hosts the wrestling team, which boasts 18 undefeated seasons and a trophy case of retired mouth guards in its storied history.
