Looks like Iowa won't be particpating in the Gavitt Games this year. (Link) I'm not sure if that's good news or bad news. It all would have depended on who the opponent was going to be.

Just my 2¢ .. .. GO HAWKS!!!

I desperately want Iowa to visit Creighton soon in this. I assumed that was a matchup that would have happened already in this.

“We just felt in a year when we weren’t playing in the Big East challenge, play a game like that somewhere,” McCaffery said. “We just thought that was a terrific opportunity for a lot of reasons.
