Iowa men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery will appear on the Big Ten Network as a guest analyst on March 28. The first-year coach will join hosts Dave Revsine, Mike Hall, and Shon Morris for “Big Ten Basketball and Beyond: Tournament Edition” at 7 p.m. CDT.

McCaffery will discuss the NCAA Tournament performances of conference foes Ohio State and Wisconsin, both of which are in the Sweet Sixteen.

The Hawkeyes were 0-3 this season against Ohio State and Wisconsin, but they played well in the two games played in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The team hung with the Buckeyes on Jan. 4 before losing, 73-68, and forced overtime against the Badgers in a 62-59 loss on Feb. 9.

McCaffery appeared in five NCAA Tournaments as a head coach before arriving at Iowa. He took Lehigh to the Dance in 1988, North Carolina-Greensboro in 2001, and Siena from 2008-10. His 2009 Siena squad upset Ohio State in the first round before falling to No. 1-seed Louisville.
