Hawkeye basketball team stranded another night in Cedar Falls

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The Iowa basketball team is still snowed in and will be spending a second night in Cedar Falls after falling to UNI Tuesday in the McLeod Center.  Assistant Sports Information Director Matt Weitzel confirmed that due to the winter weather and road conditions, the Hawkeyes will be staying at a local hotel and tentatively plan to return to Iowa City on Thursday.

With finals next week, Weitzel says the players are using their time to catch up on homework and focus on their studies.  They're also getting prepared by watching film on Iowa State, who they'll meet in Ames on Friday night.

Game time between the Cyclones and Hawkeyes is set for 7 PM.
