Hawkeye women think big

The Iowa Hawkeye women won 27 games last year, which tied for the second-most in school history.
The Hawks finished second in the Big Ten Tournament and return four starters, including all-world point guard Samantha Logic.
Iowa led the Big Ten in scoring and assists, plus the Hawks set a school record for scoring offense in 2013-2014, averaging 78.2 points per game.
The Hawkeyes are ranked 19th in the preseason AP top-25 poll.
So when I say there was excitement and optimism at media day last Thursday, you can see why.

Hawk Talk

I had a good feeling last week before Iowa hosted Northwestern Saturday at Kinnick Stadium.
After Iowa played one of its worst games in a couple of years against Maryland and lost 38-31 two weeks ago, I thought Iowa would bounce back against the Wildcats.
Why?
Kirk Ferentz might not be the best coach ever, but he is a stand-up guy and the players respect him.
Also Iowa has some great leaders, especially the four captains.
You start with All American Brandon Scherff, who led the offensive line to its best day... no sacks and the Hawkeye running backs averaged 4.8 yards per carry.
