Luka Garza’s 2019-2020 season at Iowa was one of the best in program history. It was good enough to earn him National Player of the Year honors by six national media outlets and Big Ten Player of the Year.
Now, with the deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft just a day away, there are no pending decisions which will have a bigger impact on the college basketball landscape than Garza’s. With him back in Iowa City, the Hawkeyes are the odds on favorite to win their first Big Ten Regular Season Conference Championship since 1979 and a preseason top-5 team nationally. Without him, they’re a giant question mark with only a true freshman who has been delayed in joining the team from England in the fold as a true center.
Iowa fans will learn their fate in just a few hours as Garza is set to announce his decision at 12:15pm CT. The announcement will be live streamed on the Hawkeye Sports YouTube channel linked below. In addition to the announcement, Garza will take time for questions from the media, who will be dialed in via Zoom.
