The Iowa Hawkeyes men’s basketball Staff represents the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, as a member of the Big Ten Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
Coach Fran McCaffery is the head coach, and has been since 2010 at Iowa.
The Hawkeyes won the Big Ten tournament double, won eight Big Ten regular-season conference championships and have played 26 NCAA Tournaments, eight NIT Tournaments. Iowa has played in the Final Four on three occasions, reaching the semifinals in 1955 and 1980 and playing in the championship match against the University of San Francisco in 1956.
Iowa basketball was broadly effective in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s using a program resurgence under Lute Olson and the tenures of George Raveling and Tom Davis. Beneath Olson, the Hawkeyes moved into the 1980 Final Four and won their final regular season championship.
They play Arena, along with Iowa women’s basketball, wrestling, and volleyball clubs.
Prior to playing in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, which started in 1983, the Hawkeyes played at the Iowa Armory and the Iowa Field House, which is still utilized today by the institution’s gymnastics teams. Before losing to in-state rival Northern Iowa, in 2006, the Hawkeyes gathered 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.
