Iowa Hawkeyes Men’s Basketball Schedule
The Iowa Hawkeyes began playing organized basketball just after the turn of the century (the last one), and compiled a very respectable 10-2 record their very first season. Iowa joined the Big 10 Conference 105 years ago and won their first Big Ten championship under legendary coach Sam Barry in 1920s. The Hawkeyes do have a solid basketball pedigree having been to the NCAA Tournament 20 times over the decades, including two Elite Eight (1987, 2003) appearances and one Final Four (1980) appearance. That success adds up to a lot of demand for Iowa Hawkeyes basketball tickets, so get yours soon.
The home games on the Iowa Hawkeyes schedule are played at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, which seats 15,500 fans and is located in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. That said, don’t think you are going to come to town and just pick up Hawkeyes tickets for a song and a dance. Iowa City is crazy about their team and just about every home game on the Hawkeyes schedule is a sell-out, so make sure you get your Hawkeyes basketball tickets in advance.
Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery now has two full seasons under his belt with the program, and things are certainly looking up for the squad under his leadership. In ‘10-‘11 the team was at the bottom of the Big Ten with an 11-20 overall record and a dismal 4-14 conference tally. Then last season the Hawkeyes improved substantially to 18-17 overall and 8-10 in the always tough Big Ten. The young squad was rewarded for their hard work with an invitation to the NIT tournament, where they advanced to the second round. The Hawkeye’s roster will be undergoing a few changes in the 2013 season. But coach McCaffery can look forward to the contributions of talented sophomore Aaron White, who is determined to improve on his breakout freshman season, and senior Eric May, who is now fully recovered from the nagging lower back injuries that slowed him down the second half of last season. The Hawkeyes will be a dangerous team this year, especially when the Big 10 Tournament rolls around. Buy your Iowa Hawkeyes basketball tickets soon.
