INPIYLTI: Hawkeye Women Beat Iowa State; Men Take Their Shot Tonight

It's in-state rivalry time for Iowa's basketball teams. The Hawkeyes have one win in the books and go for number two tonight.

LISA BLUDER'S TEAM GOT OFF TO A FAST START AGAINST ISU. They held a 14-0 lead early in the first half. Then things got Lickliter-y. The Cyclones battled back and the game would remain close until the final minutes. The Cyclones held Hawkeye center Morgan Johnson to only seven points and the Hawkeyes to only 50 points total. Iowa's Melissa Dixon had a team high 11 points in the 50-42 win over the Clones.

FRAN MCCAFFERY TALKED ALL ABOUT THE CLONES DURING HIS WEEKLY PRESS CONFERENCE. Here is the transcript. Fran is concerned about ISU's Korie Lucious, a transfer from Michigan State. He adds that Iowa State has a lot of weapons and are an athletic team.

FRED HOIBERG ALSO TALKED ABOUT TONIGHT'S GAME. He says the game is big for both schools because "it will be a big win for the resume once tournament time comes." He called Iowa a "tremendous challenge" and a "great test" for his team. Like McCaffery, Hoiberg says Iowa has "a lot of weapons."

ANOTHER WIN FOR THE WRESTLING TEAM. It was an afternoon matinée at Carver-Hawkeye yesterday as Lehigh and Iowa met. The Hawkeyes were winners, 26-9. A better recap will become available later.

FIFTY-THREE HAWKEYES EARNED ALL-ACADEMIC TEAM THIS FALL. That number includes fifteen from the football team. James Vandenberg, Steve Bigach, Don Shumpert, James Morris and Mark Weisman are just to name a few. Women's field hockey had an impressive 12 and 11 team members earn honors.
