Iowa Women's Basketball Media Day


Iowa brought an experienced team into last season's NCAA women's basketball tournament. With the first two rounds at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, the Hawkeyes seemed poised to make noise nationally.

But the Hawkeyes got drilled by Georgia Tech in the first round, and a rebuilding process was soon set in motion. Nine of the 12 players on Iowa's current roster are freshmen and sophomores.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said during Wednesday's media day that how quickly the Hawkeyes can grow is going to determine where they end up in the Big Ten standings.

The Hawkeyes will be led by the returning trio of Kachine (KAH-sheen) Alexander, Kamille Wahlin and JoAnn Hamlin and backed by a five-player freshmen class.

Iowa opens on Nov. 14 against Santa Clara.
