Iowa had a great regular season finishing as the runner-up in the Big Ten with a 15-3 record.  The Hawkeyes then won the Big Ten Conference Tournament title for the second consecutive season.

Iowa earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and would advance to their first Final Four since 1993.

In the national semifinals, Iowa knocked off defending champion, and previously undefeated South Carolina, before a sellout crowd in Dallas to advance to their first-ever national championship.

Facing another SEC team in the final, Iowa’s magical run fell short in a controversial loss to third-seeded LSU.
