Under Head Coach Fran McCaffery, the Iowa Hawkeyes continue to be a strong contender in the Big 10 Conference. The team has gone to the NCAA Championship 25 times and played in the Final Four three times. Their last appearance was in 2015 when the team lost to Gonzaga University in the second round. This Big 10 Conference team plays its home games in Carver Hawkeye Arena on the University of Iowa campus in Iowa City. Thirty Hawkeyes players have gone on to play in the NBA, including Tyler Cook, Jarrod Uthoff, Brad Lohaus, John Johnson and Bobby Hansen. Within the conference, their strongest rivals are Michigan University, Michigan State University, Purdue and Maryland. While some say may wish to turn back the clock to the Iowa Hawkeyes' thrilling season in 1987 when the team was fiercely feared by everyone, with many players going on to NBA careers, this year promises lots of thrilling action.
