OT - Drake Wins AT Iowa 56-51

Iowa did not shoot a free throw the entire game!

Lickliter got the big bucks but he went from the Butler Penthouse to the Iowa Outhouse for this season anyway.

This game should not have even gone to overtime. Drake was winning the entire game and had a 5 or 6 point lead with less than a minute. Iowa hit one or two LONG three's to get it to overtime, but it was obvious to anyone who watched that Drake was the better team. Iowa does not get to the basket at all, passes around the outside and then shoots. Not surprising they don't get to the line much. Going to be a long year in Iowa City. The "Hair" from New Castle left the cupboards pretty empty.....

I watched the late night rerun of this game on the Big10 network and have to concur with BlueThunder - Iowa is a very unimpressive team. And talk about a dead crowd!

it didn't go to overtime, Drake won in regulation, OT is off-topic.

I was wondering about that, because although I didn't watch the last 40 seconds of the game or so, I wasn't sure how Iowa would have been able to get it to overtime. I watched until the last part of the game where Iowa through up a couple of long three's and then would call timeout after each. Drake was still up by 4 or 5 I think, and I figured they had it wrapped up so I turned in off and went to bed. Wouldn't have been shocked had it really gone into overtime, but certianly surprised. Either way, Iowa is pretty bad and I think Lickliter (sp?) should have stayed at Butler for one more year with all those seniors and then taken something better than Iowa where he would have had something to work with. I hope they are willing to give him a few years in Iowa City to fix the ship because it is taking on a lot of water right now....
