Tucker’s pre-game status

December 20, 2008

Iowa freshman guard Anthony Tucker is in uniform taking shots in warm-ups. Although it’s unlikely he’ll start, it appears he’ll play against Drake today.

Tucker, who leads Iowa at 13.1 points a game, was suspended from the team Dec. 7 after an alcohol-related incident. He pleaded guilty Monday to public intoxication. He was reinstated on Thursday and participated in practice that day.

Tucker missed two games with the suspension.
