Iowa basketball announces free student admission for Wisconsin game
The Iowa men's basketball team announced on Monday that Iowa students will receive free admission to the Hawkeyes' game against No. 16 Wisconsin on Thursday.
Tip-off is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. in Carver-Hawkeye Arena; the game will be carried nationally by ESPN2.
Students can use valid Iowa IDs to pick up their tickets at the IMU Box Office or the Athletics Ticket Office in Carver-Hawkeye. Tickets will also be available at the south entrance of the arena on Thursday. Student season-ticket holders will be reimbursed $5 by the UI Student Government at the game.
The first 2,000 fans at the game will receive free Matt Gatens bobblehead dolls; the first 500 Iowa students get free pizza and a rally towel; and the first 100 students through the doors will receive free ice cream.
Cambus will run extra shuttles to the game, with Red and Blue Routes servicing the dorms every 10 minutes starting at 7 p.m.
Iowa (14-13, 6-8 Big Ten) is gunning for its second-straight home win over a ranked opponent. The Hawkeyes knocked off then-No. 18 Indiana on Sunday, 78-66. Head coach Fran McCaffery and Company will then take to the road for games against Illinois and Nebraska before returning for the regular-season finale against Northwestern on March 3.
Wisconsin (20-7, 9-5) is coming off a 10-point win over Penn State on Sunday. The Hawkeyes beat the Badgers, 72-65, when the two teams met on Dec. 31 in Madison.
