The Iowa Hawkeye men bid for their third straight road win in Big Ten play on Tuesday night with a visit to Indiana. Both teams are 4-5 in the league race and the Hoosiers are one of the top defensive teams in the Big Ten.
That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Hawkeyes will be in search of a second straight win in Assembly Hall after a 90-68 victory last season.
McCaffery says Indiana sophomore forward Malik Reneau (has become one of the top players in the conference. Reneau is averaging nearly 17 points per game and shooting just under 58 percent from the field.
Iowa senior guard Tony Perkins has stepped up his game as of late. Perkins scored 24 points in Saturday’s win at Michigan and has topped the 20-point mark in three straight games.
After finishing with only six points in a home loss to Maryland junior guard Payton Sandfort responded with a career-high 26 points in the win at Michigan.
