IOWA CITY, Iowa — Hawkeye fans following the University of Iowa men’s basketball team to Des Moines on Saturday are encouraged to attend the pregame spirit rally to cheer on our men’s basketball team at the Hy-Vee Classic on Saturday, December 15, 2018.
All four schools – Iowa, Iowa State, Drake, and Northern Iowa – are collaborating to bring you one large, shared event! We will offer cash refreshments with snacks and appetizers while supplies last. In addition, there will be live music, giveaways, and performances by each school’s band and spirit squads – fun for everyone!
The fun begins at 1:30 p.m. in Veterans Memorial Hall in the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center, 730 Third Street in Des Moines, across from the Wells Fargo Arena.
