Bluder Live Thursday

Nov. 9, 2011

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder will talk about her Hawkeyes, as well as their regular season-opening opponent Harvard, on Thursday.

The visit with local, regional and national media assembled in the press room on the lower level of Carver-Hawkeye Arena will begin at 12:30 p.m. (CT) and will be available live from start to finish on Hawkeye All-Access, the multi-media portal inside, the official World Wide Web of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Iowa opens the season Saturday against the Crimson with a 7 p.m. (CT) tipoff on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The game is one of two first-round bouts in the Hawkeye Challenge (UNLV and Butler play at 5:30 p.m.). Bluder is 11-0 in season-openers with the Hawkeyes; for her to make it a dozen straight, Iowa will have to knock off a Harvard team that returns 10 letterwinners and three All-Ivy League performers from a team that went 18-10 last season.

In addition to live coverage of each of Bluder’s weekly press conferences, subscribers to Hawkeye All-Access also have exclusive access to the weekly visits with the media of UI head football coach Kirk Ferentz and UI men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery, live and exclusive coverage of Ferentz’s, 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 women’s basketball game featuring Brent Balbinot and Shelley Till, and all football, men’s basketball and wrestling events.
