-- Iowa coach Fran McCaffery is facing his alma mater. He played three seasons at Penn, helping the Quakers to three Ivy League championships, after transferring from Wake Forest. The last time Iowa played Penn was during the year he sat out after transferring. This will be the third time McCaffery has faced Penn as a head coach.
-- Penn has lost to Temple and Penn State while defeating Monmouth (N.J.) and has had a different leading scorer in each game. Sophomore center Darien Nelson-Henry scored a career-high 21 points Saturday against Penn State, hitting 11 of 11 free throws.
-- Iowa has topped 100 points in back-to-back games for the first time since early in the 1997-98 season. While Penn has gotten 83 percent of its points from its starters in the first three games, the Hawkeyes are nearly 50-50 in that area. They have gotten 189 points from starters, 188 from the bench.
-- Iowa freshman Peter Jok, who is fourth on the team in scoring at 9.8 points per game, will be facing his older brother Dau, who is a senior at Penn and one of the Quakers’ captains.
