Hawkeyes Play First NCAA Tournament Game In Eight Years

Posted: Updated:


Fans say the Hawkeyes have had an inconsistent season, losing six of their last seven games.

"They started out really good, and just kind of fell apart at the end," fan Jon Pape said.

"They've played some really good games, and they've played a few not so," said Marty Crowley, also a fan.

Their opponents, the Tennessee Volunteers, have won five out of six. That hasn't stopped Iowa fans from coming together, watching one team. Emily Birdsell, a waitress at Sport's Fans Pizza in Bettendorf, says fans often come to the restaurant to watch the Hawkeyes play.

"We get packed," she said. "We get a lot of our regulars in. We get all of the college students. We get everybody."

Fans say the Hawkeyes are in for the win.

"Of course they're going to win! It's going to be a lot of fun," Malynda Ryan said.

Whether they win or lose, Iowa fans say they're loyal to the end.
