Michigan Basketball opens conference play in 2017 when they travel to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes.
The Wolverines wrapped up their non-conference stretch of games sitting at 10-3 and will now turn their attention to competing for a Big Ten championship and punching their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.
The Hawkeyes have been a team that has given them trouble in recent bouts, but they are currently in a slump of a season. Still, the Wolverines could be ripe for an upset on the road in a tough environment.
Look for a very close game to open up the Big Ten stretch for the Wolverines, who have not won at Iowa since 2011.
