The uncertainty of COVID-19’s emergence ended the Iowa Hawkeyes’ season before they could play in any tournaments to validate an unexpected 2019-20 season. Their regular season was spearheaded by Garza, who put up 23.9 points and 9.8 rebounds, en route to their 20-11 (11-9) regular season record which saw them finish 5th in the Big Ten.
The inability to validate the success with a potential Sweet 16 (or more) proved to be too much for Garza to overlook, especially with Iowa returning Jordan Bohannon and Jack Nunge to fill the roles of Bakari Evelyn and Ryan Kriener.
