Hawkeye Sports And Iowa Election Laws
On Sunday, the Iowa Hawkeye’s Luka Garza became the all-time leading scorer in Iowa men's basketball history. In a game against Penn State, Garza surpassed the record set by Roy Marble. The Des Moines Register's Mark Emmert writes of Garza, “He has been consistently brilliant for the past two seasons.” Emmert joins River to River host Ben Kieffer to talk about Garza and the University of Iowa's recent decision to reinstate the women's swimming program.
