Iowa men host Northern Illinois Friday night

The Iowa men return from the Christmas break on Friday night and host Northern Illinois in their final nonconference game. The Hawkeyes are 7-5 while Northern Illinois is 6-5.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery who is happy with his rotation as they get ready to resume Big Ten play.

McCaffery expects freshman forward Ladji (LAH-jee) Dembele (dem-BELL-ay) to play Friday night. He missed the last game against Maryland-Baltimore County with a leg injury.

Freshman point guard Brock Harding continuesd to make progress. He is coming off a 10-point, 12 assist effort in a win over UMBC and could be in line for even more minutes.
