Iowa Hawkeyes men’s basketball

The Iowa Hawkeyes men’s basketball Staff Reflects the University of Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa, as a member of the Big Ten Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Coach Fran McCaffery is the head coach, and has been since 2010 at Iowa.
The Hawkeyes won eight Big Ten regular-season conference championships, have played in 26 NCAA Tournaments, eight NIT Tournaments and won the Big Ten championship. Iowa has played in the Final Four on three events, reaching the semifinals in 1955 and 1980 and playing in the championship game against the University of San Francisco in 1956.
Iowa basketball was broadly effective in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s with a schedule resurgence under Lute Olson and the tenures of both George Raveling and Tom Davis. Under Olson, the Hawkeyes won their Big Ten regular season championship and went to the 1980 Final Four.
They play Arena, together with Iowa women’s wrestling, basketball, and volleyball teams.
Prior to playing Carver-Hawkeye Arena, which opened in 1983,[6] the Hawkeyes played in the Iowa Armory and the Iowa Field House, which is still used today by the school’s gymnastics teams. In 2006, the Hawkeyes gathered a school-record 21 successive wins at home before losing to rival Northern Iowa.
Four Iowa coaches have been inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame: Sam Barry, Ralph Miller, Lute Olson and George Raveling.
