Iowa bids for Bluder's first-ever trip to the Sweet 16.

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Lisa Bluder has accomplished a lot during her 15-year career at Iowa.  She's won over 300 games, won a Big Ten title, won a Big Ten Tournament title, and made eight straight trips to the NCAA Tournament.  But one thing she's never done at Iowa -- keep playing on the second weekend of the tournament.  It's hard to imagine that she'll have a better chance to end that drought than today.  Iowa has a home game against a #11 seed, Miami, with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line.  Miami is a solid team, but they're not a particularly great team -- Iowa has beaten several teams better than the Canes during the regular season.  Come on, Hawks.  Keep this ride going.

The game tips off at 11:00 AM CT, with TV coverage from ESPN2 and online coverage from WatchESPN/ESPN3.  The game will be on ESPN2 for viewers in Iowa and the Miami area, but may not be on ESPN2 in other areas; the Duke-Mississippi State game is on ESPN2 at the same time and they may be switching between games.  The entire Iowa-Miami game will be available on WatchESPN/ESPN3, though.

EDIT: You can watch the game on WatchESPN here.
