PARDON OUR PROGRESS! As friends of the University of Iowa and fans of the Hawkeyes know, the UI Athletics Department is well into a multi-million dollar revitalization of Carver-Hawkeye Arena. This important and exciting project has reduced for this season the number of ticket windows that are operational on game nights. Fans attending the home events of the 2010-11 UI men’s basketball, women’s basketball and wrestling teams are invited to avoid game night delays by purchasing their event tickets online or in advance of game day. If your schedule doesn’t allow for an advance purchase, we recommend you consider arriving at the Arena a little earlier than originally planned. Go Hawks!

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa head men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery will meet the media at 12:15 p.m. Friday (Jan. 7) at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. McCaffery will talk about the Hawkeyes’ upcoming game at No. 10 Purdue on Sunday, beginning at 11:05 a.m. (CT). The Boilermakers have won seven straight in the series.

Purdue is off to a 14-1 start with its only blemish coming against Richmond on Nov. 27. The Boilermakers are led by the 1-2 punch of JaJuan Johnson (19.6 points, 8.5 rebounds per game) and E’Twaun Moore (19.3-5.9).

The Hawkeyes enter the game with a record of 7-7. Three Iowa players average double figures in scoring: Matt Gatens (12.7), Eric May (11.2) and Bryce Cartwright (10.5).

In addition to live coverage of each of McCaffery’s press conferences, subscribers to Hawkeye All-Access also have exclusive access to the weekly visits with the media of UI women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder, live and exclusive coverage of McCaffery’s and Bluder’s postgame media conference after home events, live and exclusive coverage of the weekly “Hawk Talk” radio shows of Iowa’s men’s basketball and women’s basketball coaches, and, of course, the live play-by-play of every Iowa men’s basketball game featuring Gary Dolphin and Bobby Hansen, and all women’s basketball and wrestling events.
