Walkin'

At first I learned of the News Agency through stories Dad brought home.
Since the yarns came from Dad– no stranger to telling a whopper just for the heck of it– I had no way of knowing the accuracy of anything he told me.

UI men still hurting

IOWA CITY– I’m looking at the Iowa bench in their 49-45 home loss to Purdue last Saturday and I saw three starters who couldn’t play against the Boilermakers.
First you have Anthony Tucker, academically ineligible, who is the Hawks' best three-point shooter, along with Matt Gatens.
Sitting next to Anthony was Jeff Peterson, Iowa’s only true point guard, who leads the team in assists and steals.
Jeff has been playing with a broken bone in his left wrist, but a hamstring pull in last Wednesday’s loss to Wisconsin put him on the bench for the whole game.
