Would be nice if BTN would have covered the Iowa game on the tourney program from last night. I realize it is the NIT but they are a Big Ten team.

I am glued to the tube watching NCAA/NIT tourney, Big Ten network could as a footnote mention that Iowa has been representing the conference well. Go Hawks!
