Iowa City, Iowa — Luka Garza will return to Iowa City Tuesday night to have his jersey retired at halftime of the 25th ranked Hawkeyes game against Michigan State.
The two-time All American was the National Player of the Year last season and athletic director Gary Barta says they are pleased to have fans back for the ceremony.
It is the second time in the past couple of years the school has honored a national player of the year. Former women’s standout Megan Gustafson won the award in 2019.
Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says it is an appropriate honor for Garza.
