No. 25 Iowa Hosts Michigan State Tuesday Night

Iowa City, Iowa — Ranked for the first time this season number-25 Iowa hosts Michigan State Tuesday night.

Iowa is 8-7 in the Big Ten while the Spartans have dropped out of title contention with two straight losses. They are 9-6 in the league race.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Hawkeyes have climbed above 500 in the Big Ten by winning four of their last five games. McCaffery says Iowa’s depth has been a big factor.

McCaffery has been impressed with the way his team has been consistent emotionally.

Sophomore forward Kris Murray on the Hawkeyes being ranked for the first time.

Murray says coming off a couple of losses the Spartans will be motivated.
