Two forgettable rematches await Hawkeyes on ESPN’s Super Tuesday

[ 0 ] August 13, 2014 |

Assuming no large metal beams fall from the ceiling, the Iowa men’s basketball team will play two “Super Tuesday” games on ESPN this coming season.

ESPN’s Super Tuesday lineup — which runs for nine weeks, beginning Jan. 6 — includes Iowa at Wisconsin on Jan. 20 (6 p.m. CT), and Iowa at Indiana on March 3 (8 p.m. CT).

The lineup of games was revealed in a joint Big Ten Conference/ESPN release.

Fran McCaffery’s Hawkeyes are coming off a roller-coaster season in which they roared to a top-10 ranking and faded late in the season. Iowa ended up 20-13 and lost in the First Four portion of the NCAA tournament against Tennessee.

The rematch at Wisconsin was the site of the infamous Fran McCaffery double-technical ejection, a game Iowa lost.

The rematch at Indiana will revisit last year’s postponement of a game (that that Hawkeyes eventually lost) because Assembly Hall’s ceiling started falling apart on gameday.

Iowa’s schedule is gradually coming together. Earlier this week, it was announced Iowa’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge game at North Carolina on Dec. 3 will tipoff at 6:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.

The remainder of Iowa’s schedule will be released in the coming weeks, Iowa sports information said.
