Over the course of 10 weeks, we’re counting down Fran McCaffery’s squads as head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes. Below are links to previous iterations in the series:
In the fall of 2017, the Iowa Hawkeyes were coming off an unexpected and enjoyable season featuring senior Peter Jok and a cadre of underclassmen.

Thankfully, the season ended a week earlier than normal as a result of Jim Delany moving the Big Ten Conference Tournament to Madison Square Garden the week ahead of the Big East Tournament.
