IOWA CITY, Iowa – The fourth-ranked Iowa men’s basketball team defeated Minnesota on Sunday, but the final score (75-71) was much closer than expected. Iowa entered the game as a 19.5 favorite.
Monday’s podcast discusses whether fatigue might be hurting Iowa’s performance with the starters now playing so many minutes and with the bench struggling. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery tried to downplay the slim margin of victory on Sunday, saying Iowa defeated a good Minnesota squad.
The controversy with the Iowa field hockey program also was part of the discussion, along with a few other topics as usual.
