IOWA CITY – Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery held a press conference Monday at Carver Hawkeye Arena and talked about his team’s close loss to Nebraska last Saturday and how he expects his team to respond in Wednesday’s game against Purdue.
“But the question I think, the challenge before this team, is where do we go from here. That’s to be determined,” McCaffery said Monday.
McCaffery said the Nebraska loss was a tough pill to swallow.
“You’re going to have games where you don’t shoot it well” the coach said. “It was lucky we had a 16 point lead the way we were playing defense in the second half. Guys were just going by us, throwing it in the post, turning it into scoring. We were not as effective as we have been. That’s clearly been one of our strengths. I don’t think there’s any question about that.”
