The next step

The Hawkeye men’s basketball team had its first winning season in three years (18-17) and now is ready to take the next step.
What does that mean?
How about 20 wins, finishing in the top half of the Big Ten and making it to the Big Dance (the NCAA tournament)?
They have a chance, and with only one senior on the roster, the future looks bright.
Eric May (6-5, 217) is the last man standing. He came in with Cully Payne and Brandon Cougill, but they both are gone.
