The Iowa Hawkeyes men’s basketball Staff represents the University of Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa, as a member of the Big Ten Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
Coach Fran McCaffery has been at Iowa since 2010, and is the current head coach.
The Hawkeyes won eight Big Ten regular-season conference championships have played 26 NCAA Tournaments, eight NIT Tournaments and won the Big Ten championship. Iowa has played at the Final Four on three events, reaching the semifinals at 1955 and 1980 and playing in the championship match against the University of San Francisco in 1956.
Iowa basketball was broadly successful in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s with a program resurgence under Lute Olson and the tenures of George Raveling and Tom Davis. Beneath Olson, the Hawkeyes won their final Big Ten regular season championship and went to the 1980 Final Four.
They play in 15,400-seat Carver-Hawkeye Arena, along with Iowa women’s basketball, wrestling, and volleyball clubs.
Prior to playing Carver-Hawkeye Arena, which started in 1983, the Hawkeyes played in the Iowa Armory and the Iowa Field House, which is still utilized today by the school’s gymnastics teams. Before losing to rival Northern Iowa in 2006, the Hawkeyes accumulated a school-record 21 wins at home.
Four Iowa coaches have been inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame: Sam Barry, Ralph Miller, Lute Olson and George Raveling.
