The Bluder Bunch

Feb. 4, 2011

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 women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder was recently featured on the Big Ten Network in a short story following her life both on and off the basketball court.

In a story called “The Bluder Bunch,” the Big Ten Network showed the Hawkeye head coach, both on the court as a mentor and off the court as a wife and mother.

Bluder’s children, Hannah, Emma and David, each talked about what it was like to have a mom who is also a head basketball coach.

Former Hawkeye women’s basketball player Lindsey Nyenhuis is a Freelance Production Assistant with the Big Ten Network and was on campus in Iowa City to help film the story.
