McCaffery Live Wednesday

Dec. 11, 2012

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery will meet the media at 2 p.m. (CT) Wednesday to talk about Saturday’s Hy-Vee Big 4 Classic game against Northern Iowa.

The weekly briefing with local, regional and national media will be held in the Media Room inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena, and be available live from start to finish on Hawkeye All-Access, the multimedia portal inside, the official worldwide website of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Saturday’s game is slated to begin at 1:31 p.m. (CT) in Wells Fargo Arena (14,606) in Des Moines. The game will be televised on the BTN with Eric Collins and Shon Morris calling the action.

The Panthers bring a 6-3 record into the contest. After losing three games in the Bahamas against Louisville, Stanford and Marquette, Northern Iowa has won three straight, including a 82-77 road triumph at George Mason on Dec. 8. The win snapped GMU’s 14-game home winning streak.

Iowa enters the weekend with an 8-2 overall record after downing Iowa State, 80-71, in an Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series match-up Dec. 7. The Hawkeyes have won three straight following back-to-back losses against Wichita State and Virginia Tech.

The Hawkeyes hold a 33-9 advantage in the series over Northern Iowa, but the two squads have split the last 12 meetings. Saturday’s game in Des Moines will be the first-ever on a neutral floor.
