Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery says his Hawkeyes are embracing the expectations for next season.
With Luka Garza withdrawing his name from the NBA Draft the Hawkeyes return seven players with starting experience from a team that finished last season with a 20-11 record.
Iowa is likely to be a top five team in the national pre-season polls.
McCaffery says Iowa’s biggest hurdle may be how tough the Big Ten will be, again.
Sophomore guard C.J. Fredrick says the Hawkeyes hope to keep the expectations in perspective.
Fredrick says the Hawkeyes will have a lot of balance on offense.
