Iowa

Last season: 22-11, lost in second round to NCAA Tournament

Nickname: Hawkeyes.

Coach: Fran McCaffery.

Conference: Big Ten.

Who’s gone: G Mike Gesell, G Anthony Clemmons, F Jarrod Uthoff, C Adam Woodbury.

Who’s back: G Peter Jok, senior scored 16.1 points per game in 2015-16 and could lead Big Ten in scoring this season; F Dom Uhl, junior with a unique skill set; F Nicholas Baer, former walk-on provided major spark off the bench last season.

Who’s new: F Tyler Cook. The highest-rated recruit McCaffery ever landed and a likely starter from day one; G Jordan Bohannon. Older brothers Jason (Wisconsin) and Matt (Northern Iowa) were solid multi-year starters on NCAA Tournament teams.

The Skinny: Iowa lost nearly everyone from the core of a program that reached three straight NCAA tourneys, though those teams never reached a Sweet 16. If Jok embraces his role as the go-to guy and the youngsters develop, a fourth straight bid isn’t out of the question.
