Hawks Tate Still Out


Iowa forward Cyrus Tate will likely miss his fourth straight game this weekend because of a high ankle sprain.

Tate, who was injured early in the first half against Minnesota on Jan. 8, is not listed as a starter for Saturday's game at Penn State. He started Iowa's first 16 games and is averaging 7.4 points and 6.3 rebounds a game.

David Palmer has stepped up in Tate's absence. The reserve forward is averaging 20 points and 7.5 since being inserted into starting lineup two games ago.

The Hawkeyes (12-7, 2-4 Big Ten) will be looking for their first conference road win against the Nittany Lions (15-5, 4-3).
