So no Hawkeyes in the NCAA Tournament, for the seventh straight year.
The Iowa Hawkeyes Men's Basketball team still could make their way to a championship of sorts, playing in New York's Madison Square Garden in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) Championship.
But to win this prize they will have to do something that plagued them during the past season: win against a good team on the road.
The Iowa Hawkeyes not only missed the tournament, they received a #3 seed in the NIT, likely meaning that several teams were closer to getting into the tournament than they were.
Iowa will host #6 seed Indiana State (18-14) on Wednesday night. The winner of that game will play the winner of #7 Stony Brook versus #2 seed Massachusetts. If Massachusetts wins, it will mean Iowa will have to travel to UMass to play the game.
Here is some game and ticket info from Hawkeyesports:
University of Iowa men's basketball season ticket holders can order tickets for Iowa's first round National Invitation Tournament (NIT) game immediately. The Hawkeyes, a No. 3 seed, will host sixth-seeded Indiana State (18-14) of the Missouri Valley Conference on Wednesday, March 20 at 6 p.m. (CT). The game will be televised on ESPN2.
Only season ticket holders will be allowed to order tickets tonight until noon (CT) Monday. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for UI students and younger. Season ticket holders may order as many tickets as they would like, but seat locations are not guaranteed to be the same as during the season.
