Iowa Women Look to Solve Big Red Puzzle

By Jeff Linder, Reporter

IOWA CITY — Lincoln, Iowa City, Indianapolis. Hasn't mattered.

Regardless of site, regardless of time, Nebraska has owned the Iowa Hawkeyes in women's basketball since its arrival in the Big Ten.

"They've been a thorn in our side," Iowa Coach Lisa Bluder acknowledged.

The Hawkeyes are 0-6 against Big Red since the Huskers joined the Big Ten fold. Nebraska has beaten Iowa twice in Lincoln, twice in Iowa City and has eliminated the Hawkeyes from the last two Big Ten tournaments.

Iowa (17-5 overall, 5-3 Big Ten) gets another shot Saturday; tipoff is 2 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
