Iowa men host Ohio State Friday night

The Iowa Hawkeye men return to Big Ten action Friday night by hosting Ohio State. The Hawks are 4-6 in the league race after faltering late in a loss at Indiana. Ohio State has dropped six of seven and is 3-7 in the league race. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery is concerned about the Buckeye’s guards.

Attendance has waned at Carver-Hawkeye Arena this season. The Hawkeyes are averaging just over 10-thousand, 300 fans per home game in Big Ten play.

McCaffery says keeping freshman center Owen Freeman out of foul trouble will be important going forward. They have been doing film study with Freeman in hopes of limiting his fouls.

Sophomore guard Josh Dix says the Hawkeyes need to be better at crunch time after suffering a couple of close losses.

Iowa has already dropped three Big Ten games at home and can ill afford another one.
