Iowa’s home game against Penn is set for Nov. 22 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Penn released its schedule today. The match-up features a sibling rivalry — Penn senior Dau Jok and Iowa freshman Peter Jok are brothers — and Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery graduated from Penn’s renowned Wharton School of Business.
The Hawkeyes battered the London Lions twice in exhibitions, twice scoring more than 100 points. A London-based website caught up with the players after the game to chat. Click here for the videos.
