SUMMARY VIDEO


Big Ten ChampionsBig Ten Champions

Summary: The Hawkeyes finished the season 20–5 and won the Big Ten title with a 14-0 conference record. To date, this is the last outright regular season conference title for the Iowa men's basketball team.

After opening the season 3-4, the Hawkeyes won 17 of their final 18 games. Led by a nucleus of players known as the "Six Pack" – John Johnson, Chad Calabria, Fred Brown, Glenn "Stick" Vidnovic, Dick Jensen, and Ben McGilmer – the team averaged 98.7 points per game including a conference-record 102.9 points per game in Big Ten games. They opened NCAA Tournament play with a 104-103 loss to eventual National runner-up Jacksonville. The Hawkeyes regrouped to defeat Notre Dame 121-106 in the Mideast Regional 3rd Place game.

Interesting fact, during the Rainbow Classic, the Hawks lost 85-76 to the Navy Subpac team, but games against service academy teams do not count against their record.
