Blackout Tonight As Iowa Hosts Ohio State
The Iowa men's basketball team looks to stay above .500 tonight as they host Ohio State. Iowa (11-10, 3-5) looks to bounce back after a 3-game losing streak. Iowa's last win was against Top 20 Purdue on January 12 and tonight's game against Ohio St. won't be easy.
Ohio St. (13-8, 3-5) has found success as of late winning three of the last four. Their only loss in that stretch was by two points to Northwestern, the same Northwestern team that beat Iowa by 35 points on Jan. 15.
Tonight's game will be the only regular-season meeting between the Hawkeyes & Buckeyes. Both teams are tied for 8th with six other teams. Tonight's game will be a turning point in the year for both teams on the post season. Win and you're looking better for either tournament. Lose and go back to the chalkboard to find answers.
Tonight's game is a Blackout and fans are encouraged to wear black. Tickets are still available for the 7:05 tip. If you can't make it to the game, it's on ESPN2.
