The Iowa basketball team is focusing on its schedule and not the preseason expectations.
The Hawkeyes enter the season ranked fifth in the A-P Poll but still have not announced an opponent for their expected opener on November 25. Senior center Luka Garza.
There is even uncertainty surrounding when and where the NCAA might be held.
The season was cancelled prior to the Hawkeyes’ first Big Ten Tournament game and junior forward Joe Wieskamp says that provides motivation heading into this season.
Wieskamp says a loaded Big Ten race helps them keep expectations in check.
Sophomore guard CJ Fredrick says they are anxious to get the season started.
Iowa has released the dates for two nonconference games. December eighth at home against North Carolina and December 19th against top ranked Gonzaga in Sioux Falls.
