PARDON OUR PROGRESS! As friends of the UI and fans of the Hawkeyes know, the UI Athletics Department is well into a multi-million dollar revitalization of Carver-Hawkeye Arena. This important and exciting project has reduced for this season the number of ticket windows that are operational on game nights. Fans attending the home events of the 2010-11 UI men's basketball, women's basketball and wrestling teams are invited to avoid game night delays by purchasing their event tickets online or in advance of game day. If your schedule doesn't allow for an advance purchase, we recommend you consider arriving at the Arena a little earlier than originally planned. Go Hawks!
IOWA CITY, IA -- Iowa Public Television will air a live broadcast of Sunday's 1 p.m. dual between the second-ranked University of Iowa wrestling team and No. 10 Michigan. Eric Braley and former Hawkeye Head Coach Dan Gable will call the action live from Mediacom Mat at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Sunday's dual will be Iowa's final home meet of 2010-11, as well as Senior Day, where seniors Matt Ballweg, Aaron Janssen, Jake Kerr, Brooks Kopsa and Luke Lofthouse, will be honored.
Tickets for the Iowa-Michigan dual are $10 for adults and $5 for youth, if purchased in advance from the UI Athletics Ticket Office, at (319) 335-9323, or online at www.hawkeyesports.com. If purchased at the door, tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for youth. The Iowa men's basketball team will host Minnesota at 5:05 p.m. Sunday on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, so wrestling fans are encouraged to stay and cheer on Head Coach Fran McCaffery and the Hawkeyes. Fans are encouraged to sit in sections G, H and I or FF, GG, HH above row 25. Anyone with a ticket to the basketball game may use that ticket to attend the Iowa-Michigan wrestling meet, but will not be allowed to leave the arena between events. Basketball fans attending the wrestling meet are encouraged to sit in sections G, H and I above row 25. The UI Athletics Ticket Office will stop selling wrestling tickets after the fifth match, and start selling men's basketball tickets.
