IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Last season's Hawkeyes could have been known as the team that revived the program. Instead, they'll be remembered for crumbling down the stretch.
Iowa was ranked 15th in the country when a fallen beam at Indiana's Assembly Hall forced the Hoosiers to postpone their Feb. 18 matchup with the Hawkeyes. The symbolism was fitting, because it foreshadowed an Iowa collapse few saw coming.
The Hawkeyes dropped seven of their last eight games, including a loss to Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA tournament, and finished 20-13 and 9-9 in the Big Ten.
