Iowa Basketball is looking for reinforcements

On the eve of last month’s Big Ten Basketball Tournament, Archie Miller discussed Iowa and coach Fran McCaffery during The Field of 68’s “After Dark” show.

“Fran McCaffery does not get enough credit for how he evaluates, recruits and develops players and his playing style,” the former Indiana coach said.

Keegan Murray, a finalist for both the Naismith and Wooden Awards, is the most recent exhibit A. Luke Garza, who won both of these awards in 2021, was exhibit B. And it goes deeper than that. First-team all-Big Ten players Devyn Marble, Aaron White and Peter Jok were not recruited by any other Big Ten schools. Another first-team player, Jarrod Uthoff, moved to Iowa from Wisconsin.
