The Iowa Hawkeyes are looking to do something they haven’t done in 16 years: play in the Big Ten Tournament Championship. The Hawkeyes slipped in the semifinals a season earlier to Illinois Fighting Illini.
It was the first visit to Iowa in the BTT semi-finals since 2006 when the Hawkes won outright. Now the Hawkeyes are looking to continue their hot play and earn a shot at the third Big Ten Tournament Championship on Sunday’s event.
While Hawkeye fans were dreaming of a chance at vengeance against the Illini, a rematch with the Hoosiers in the semifinals is a solid consolation prize. Iowa defeated Indiana in the only other meeting this season in Iowa City.
