Men’s basketball signs forward

The Iowa men’s basketball team found out two things Wednesday.

First, head coach Todd Lickliter was able to sign junior-college forward Devon Archie to a national letter of intent.

Archie, a native of Indianapolis listed at 6-9 and 220 pounds, comes to Iowa after playing two seasons at Vincennes University in Indiana. Starting 19 games as a sophomore, Archie averaged 6.1 points and six rebounds per game.

This announcement comes one week after point guard Cully Payne signed with the Hawkeyes.

The Hawkeyes also found out they will play Virginia Tech at home on Dec. 1, as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Iowa will hope to have a better performance in this year’s field, having lost its last contest in this tourney to Boston College, its last ACC/Big Ten Challenge home game to Wake Forest in 2007, and the last meeting with the Hokies in this event, falling at Virginia Tech in 2006.
