It looks like freshman guard Anthony Tucker will play Friday against Bryant, Iowa Coach Todd Lickliter said today.
Tucker, who entered Tuesday’s game as Iowa’s leading scorer at 15.1 points a game, played only eight minutes because he was ill. He didn’t score in the game.
“I think he saw the doc when he got back,” Lickliter said. “I think as much as anything he was under the weather, and you know what that does with your energy, and you needed energy in that game.
“We’re better off just to rest him, because we were competitive. Hopefully it will be a quick recovery here.
“I anticipate him playing right now. He doesn’t have to be 100 percent, you know that, but we’re not going to risk anything. We’re not going to set him back.”
