SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa women’s basketball team (2-1) will play its first road game against Northern Iowa (0-2) in Cedar Falls at 3 p.m. Nov. 22.

Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder’s Hawkeyes will try to gather themselves after suffering their first defeat against No. 19 Kansas on Wednesday night.

“I think it’s always a little bit more added incentive” playing against in-state schools, Bluder said during her Monday press conference. “I know, every time you play a game it should be important, but there is something that amps you up a little bit more about playing an in-state school.”

Junior guard Kachine Alexander enters the contest leading the Hawkeyes in both scoring (21.0) and rebounding (15.7). Alexander is the reigning co-Big Ten Player of the Week.

Iowa completed a sweep of its in-state foes last season, including a 72-46 victory over the Panthers in Carver-Hawkeye on Dec. 11, 2008.
