Hawk Women picked 3rd, Iowa men 10th in Big Ten


The Iowa Hawkeye Women's basketball team is picked 3rd and the Hawkeye men are picked to finish tenth in the Big Ten Conference.  The Hawkeye women were voted third in the coaches' poll, Penn State was picked first and Purdue second. While the media selected the Michigan State women third behind Penn State and Purdue.

Iowa guard Jaime Printy was named to the preseason All-Big Ten Team.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says sophomore guard Devyn Marble is being held out of preseason practices with a concussion. McCaffery said Thursday during Big Ten media day in Chicago that Marble suffered a concussion less than a week into fall practice, which began on Oct. 15.

McCaffery says Marble, who averaged 5.7 points a game last season, looks and feels fine. But McCaffery says Marble still has to pass a variety of tests that "aren't going as well."

McCaffery also says center Andrew Brommer hurt his knee on the first day of practice and won't be ready to play for another three weeks.

Iowa opens its season against Chicago State on Nov. 11.
