The Iowa Hawkeyes could really use a marquee win and they get another chance on Friday night when they host fifth ranked Michigan.
The Hawkeyes are 5-5 in the Big Ten and coach Fran McCaffery says it will take a complete effort to get the win.
McCaffery says rebounding and defense will be two huge factors.
McCaffery believes Friday nights should be about high school basketball. The Big Ten’s new television deal with FOX means the league is playing on Friday night’s for the first time this season.
