Iowa’s 2019-20 Men’s Basketball Schedule Released
The University of Iowa has announced its 2019-20 men’s basketball schedule. The schedule includes 16 regular season home games, including nine weekend games on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Game times, along with television and streaming information for each game, will be released in September.
Fran McCaffery has put together one of Iowa’s most challenging schedules entering his 10th season as head coach of the Hawkeyes. Iowa will play 14 regular season games against teams ranked in the Top 50 of the NCAA’s NET Rankings from a year ago.
“I am continuously amazed by the support that we receive from our fans at home and on the road,” said McCaffery. “Our home crowds were phenomenal last year, which was evident in our ability to win games and ultimately advance in the NCAA Tournament. We need that similar support this year. It will be a fun team to watch.”
Iowa will have Big Ten home contests against Maryland (Jan. 10), Michigan (Jan. 17), Rutgers (Jan. 22), Wisconsin (Jan. 27), Illinois (Feb. 2), Nebraska (Feb. 8), Ohio State (Feb. 20), Penn State (Feb. 29), and Purdue (March 3). Games against Michigan, Rutgers, and Wisconsin will be three straight home games over a 10-day stretch.
The Hawkeyes will play road games at Nebraska (Jan. 7), Northwestern (Jan. 14), Maryland (Jan. 30), Purdue (Feb. 5), Indiana (Feb. 13), Minnesota (Feb. 16), Michigan State (Feb. 25), and Illinois (March 8).
The Big Ten Conference Tournament (March 11-15) will take place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
