Iowa's Nicholas Baer thrives during Big 4 Classic

By  | 

IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - The Big 4 Classic has not only brought together all four area teams, but also several Iowa natives. It's also where Nicholas Baer's Iowa career took off.

Back in 2015, he scored 13 points, collected seven rebounds and six blocks in a 70-64 win versus Drake. He's just one of eight freshman from a Power Five Conference nationally to put up those numbers in a single game.

"I just came in and tried to play with a lot of energy," said Baer.

Iowa plays Northern Iowa on Saturday at 6:01 p.m. Iowa State takes on Drake at 3:30 p.m.
