Iowa looks to sweep season series vs. ’Cats
DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said he believes that avoiding back-to-back losses is one of the hallmarks of a championship team.
The Hawkeyes will try to sidestep a potential losing streak Saturday against a Northwestern team on a bit of a roll.
No. 10 Iowa (15-4, 4-2 Big Ten) goes on the road to face a Wildcats team it pounded 95-67 in Iowa City on Jan.9. But Northwestern (10-10, 3-4) has won three of four since then, while the Hawkeyes are coming off an eight-point loss at 21st-ranked Michigan.
