Hawk Talk

This is the second part of talking Iowa basketball with assistant coach Sherman Dillard.
Last week, I talked about Iowa winning 25 games, which is tied for the second most wins ever.
They have never gone to the finals of the NIT until last year and they played in 38 games which is the most games played in one year.
The Hawks also won 18 home games, including two in the NIT, which is the most home wins in a season.
I talked about Devyn Marble and Aaron White. Devyn led the team in scoring, assists, steals and most 3-pointers.
