Feb. 14, 2012

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder will gather with reporters Wednesday in the Media Room inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The visit with local, regional and national media will begin at 11:15 a.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.

The Hawkeyes (16-10 overall, 8-5 Big Ten Conference) will put their five-game winning streak on the line at Michigan (18-7, 7-5) on Thursday, Feb. 16, beginning at 7 p.m. It will be a matchup of two of the top four field goal-shooting teams in the Big Ten Conference: Michigan is third at 42 percent, and Iowa is fourth at 41.9. The Hawkeyes lead the league in free throw percentage (390-of-485, 80.4) and are second in assists per game (16.4) and 3-point field goals per game (6.7). Iowa needs to be near the top of its game offensively; the Wolverines are second in the Big Ten in scoring defense, allowing 57.7 points per game.

Michigan swept the season series in 2010-11, winning 54-51 in Iowa City and 63-46 in Ann Arbor, Mich. The teams will play twice again this season, wrapping up the regular season on Sunday, Feb. 26, inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
