Missouri with local connections in game versus Iowa
Iowa and Missouri will face each other on Sunday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at 1 p.m.
Missouri is coached by Robin Pingeton. She played for Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder at St. Ambrose. Pingeton is also an Atkins native.
"That was 30 years ago," said Bluder. "I think we've both changed quite a bit in so many ways during that amount of time."
Another local angle, Missouri senior forward Cierra Porter comes to Carver-Hawkeye Arena where her mom, Lisa Becker, once starred for the Hawkeyes.
