Iowa loves Hawaii 

The day after beating Louisville, Iowa beat 15th ranked Texas 82-80. It was a nail-biter.

Tonight Iowa faces 11th-ranked North Carolina for the championship of the Maui Invitational. May they drive their enemies before them, and hear the lamentations of the Tarheels.

Win or lose tonight, the Hawkeyes are off to a great start.

This is a great start to a very important season for the Hawkeyes. Steve Alford is not loved in Iowa, and the Hawks have not been to the NCAA Tournement since 2001. The strong start, even if they lose to Carolina, bodes well for Big 10 play. Without a senior on the team, perhaps Alford is on the verge of turning things around.
