Oct. 19, 2009

IOWA CITY, IA – University of Iowa Head Coach Todd Lickliter announced today that junior transfer Devon Archie is expected to be sidelined four-to-seven weeks after sustaining an injury to his left shoulder Saturday during practice.

The 6-9, 215-pounder is expected to bolster the Hawkeye front court after playing the last two seasons at Vincennes Community College. A two-time team captain at Vincennes, he averaged 6.8 points, six rebounds and 1.3 blocked shots, starting 19 of 30 games last season as a sophomore.

Iowa opens the season with an open scrimmage, Oct. 31, and an exhibition contest against Marian University, Nov. 8, in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
