Back to Back wins for Iowa, Drake cools off Panthers.

Many questioned, myself included, if the Iowa basketball team would go oh for the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes have now won two conference games in four days. There were several positives from Saturday's win at Indiana. Most of all, Iowa played with a poise and toughness that's been missing for years.

It's impossible to know whether UNI would have beaten Drake with Lucas O'Rear in the lineup. Most of O'Rear's contributions couldn't be measured and didn't show up on the stat sheet, which were the main reasons he was so valuable.

Watching a Rick Reilly "Homecoming" marathon on ESPN Classic... Am I the only one that enjoyed Reilly ALOT more before I heard/saw him talk on TV?
