IOWA MAKES THE FINAL TWO. Cole Huff narrowed his list to Creighton and Iowa last week. The former Nevada forward used his Twitter account to announce he will attend Creighton next fall. He averaged 12.4 points and 5.4 rebounds as a sophomore at Nevada last year. Huff will have to sit a year due to transfer rules.

Prior to committing, Huff was considered the 6th best transfer available. He made his choice after a weekend visit to Iowa City with his family. Because would have to sit a year this isn't considered a huge loss for Fran McCaffery and staff. Iowa will still have five scholarships to offer for the 2015 class if they don't land another prospect this summer. Fran has one of the five 2015 scholarships spoken for with small forward Brandon Hutton's verbal commitment.

SPEAKING OF HOOPS RECRUITING. A couple of names to watch:

SOME GOOD NEWS ON THE HOOPS FRONT. Fran McCaffery's son Patrick returned to hoops action. Patrick was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in March. The family is getting an enormous amount of support from all around the nation.

Patrick returned to basketball action with his 7th grade Iowa Barnstormers team. He dropped in 17 points his first game back in action and added 19 points and 8 rebounds in a loss to a team from Milwaukee.
