Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

This is the second part of the Hawkeye women’s basketball team wrap up.
I got a chance to talk to Jan Jensen, associate head coach for Iowa, last week and we talked about remodeling Carver, the season and the seniors.
This week we’ll look at the underclassmen, the five new freshmen and the trip overseas.

The junior class consists of Trisha Nesbitt, Morgan Johnson and Jaime Printy.
Trisha only played in 16 games last year and the Iowa bench, which was already short, suffered.
I really thought she took one for the team by not taking a medical redshirt.
