SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men’s and women’s basketball teams on Tuesday announced the time of their annual Black and Gold Blowout. The event will be the teams’ first public appearances of the season and will take place at 8 p.m. on Oct. 19, with doors opening at 7 p.m.

The men’s squad returns eight letter-winners and three starters. The Hawkeyes advanced to the National Invitation Tournament last season — the team’s first postseason appearance since 2006.

The women’s team also returns eight letter-winners, including three All-Big Ten athletes in Jaime Printy, Morgan Johnson, and Sam Logic. Iowa earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the fifth-straight season last year.

Tickets for the Black and Gold Blowout will be available starting Sept. 17 at the UI Ticket Office. Tickets for UI students and youth ages 18-and-under are free; general-public tickets will be $5.
