Hawkeyes' Josh Oglesby to return to team Sunday

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (AP) - Twenty fifth-ranked Iowa is gearing up for the impending return of injured junior guard Josh Oglesby, one of the team's best outside threats.

Now the Hawkeyes just have to find a place to play him.

Oglesby, who missed the first 12 games of the season with a broken foot, is expected to make his season debut when Iowa (10-2) hosts Arkansas-Pine Bluff (2-8) on Sunday.

But the Hawkeyes already use at least 10 players a game -- and benches typically get shorter once Big Ten play starts.

Still, coach Fran McCaffery views Oglesby as an important piece for Iowa with Big Ten play just a week and a half away.

McCaffery says Oglesby is a "full go," adding that he considers Oglesby one of the team's better players.
