Doors will open at 7 a.m. and is the event is free to the public. The intra-squad game will take place before the sold-out Iowa vs. Penn State football game in Kinnick Stadium.

Iowa will play two 20-minute halves. Prior to the intra-squad game, players and coaches will be available for photographs on the court and will also be available to sign autographs and visit with fans on the Northwest Concourse following the game. Herky will be present along with the Iowa cheerleaders to help tip-off the 2003-04 season. There will be various promotional giveaways to help jump-start the new season and fans will have the opportunity to purchase season tickets for the 15-game home schedule.

Iowa finished last season with an 18-15 overall record and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament.
