With the Big 4 classic days away, fans have been turning their attention to Friday’s Cy-Hawk showdown at Hilton Coliseum.
One problem - Iowa still had a game to play, Monday.
Hawks were at home in front of a small crowd for Fairleigh Dickinson.
After falling behind early 6-0, Iowa wake up to coast 92-59. Three players earn double digits for the Hawks.
The ranked Hawkeyes will now face their biggest test of the season against #17 Iowa State Cyclones. It’s the first time both teams have been ranked in the top 25 when they play each other.
