Big Ten Conference

Iowa's father-son duo set to take on the Boeheims


Iowa’s starting point guard and team-leader in assists per game (4.9), Connor McCaffery, relays play calls from his dad, Fran, from the sideline to the court.


Connor’s younger brother, Patrick, also plays for the Hawkeyes (5-2), but the freshman forward is out for the season because of ‘health issues.’ Like the Boeheims, the McCafferys are the definition of a basketball family.


Fran played college ball at Wake Forest and Penn before becoming the head coach at Iowa in 2010.


1 in the state for the class of 2017, Connor committed to Iowa in the beginning of his sophomore year of high school.


Although she was never nervous as a player at Notre Dame, her relationship to the sport and her family makes her more than a passionate fan.


Due to Syracuse’s inclement weather, Margaret will be nervous for her husband and sons back home in Iowa for Tuesday’s game against SU.
