Uthoff, Jok join experienced Iowa squad

Iowa returns nearly everyone from last season's team, which was one of the deepest teams in the Big Ten.

The additions of sophomore forward Jarrod Uthoff and freshman guard Peter Jok will make the Hawkeyes one of the deepest teams anywhere in the country.

Iowa's rotation could feature as many as a dozen players this season, and the Hawkeyes appear loaded at guard, forward and center.

It'll be up to coach Fran McCaffery to find ways to utilize Uthoff and Jok as the Hawkeyes push for their first NCAA tournament bid in eight years. Iowa, which went 25-13 and reached the NIT finals last April, opens on Nov. 8 against UNC-Wilmington.
