Big 4 Rivalry Basketball games face big changes

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The Big 4 men's basketball rivalries could be facing some big changes. The contracts are expiring in the Northern Iowa basketball series with both Iowa State and Iowa. And as of now there are no plans to continue them into the future.

Both Hawkeye and Cyclone officials are in favor of staging a four team tournament, including Drake, at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

UNI Athletic Director Troy Dannen says its beneficial for the Panthers to play both the Hawkeyes and Cyclones. Dannen says UNI would opt for participating in the Big 4 event if that was the only way to continue the rivalries.
