LET'S START WITH THE LADIES. Now that the Big Ten Tournament is over it's time to sit and wait. The NCAA Women's NCAA Tournament Selection Show is next Monday evening. The Hawks will host the first two rounds and are predicted to be a #6 seed by ESPN.
AND A MESSAGE FROM ALLY DISTERHOFT.
Wasn't the outcome we wanted, but our squad kept fighting through it all. Still a lot of ball left to be played. Thanks for all the support.— Ally Disterhoft (@ADisterhoft) March 9, 2014
THE IOWA MEN ARE A SIX SEED. In the Big Ten Tournament. Mike Hlas notes that historically, the #6 isn't all that bad. Six seeds are an overall 27-15 in the BTT. Like the 2001 Hawkeyes, this team hit a rough stretch to end the regular season. In 2001, Iowa lost five of six but as the sixth seed, won the tournament.

Spring practice will conclude with a spring game in Kinnick Stadium at 2:00 PM (CT) on April 26th.

FORMER HAWK WILLIAM LOWE IS SUING THE STATE. Lowe was one of the athletes involved in Iowa's Rhabdo case in 2011. Lowe quit football following the ordeal. Per the Daily Iowan,
"Lowe claims the state, through the University of Iowa Athletics Department, failed to properly supervise the athletes during workouts and offer prompt medical care. He also contends the training was "dangerous and impromper."
