IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Iowa freshman basketball player Anthony Tucker revealed Tuesday that he is recovering from Mono.

Tucker said that lost strength and energy from mononucleosis has impacted his performance on the basketball court in recent weeks.   Right now, the Hawkeyes' scoring leader is riding the bench as a reserve until he gets to full strength.

Tucker averages 11.8 points a game but has collected only 1 minute of playing time in Iowa's past three games.

Doctors diagnosed Tucker with mononucleosis during the first week of December.  Tucker said he lost 8 pounds when he got sick.
