Tate doesn’t play again

February 11, 2009

Iowa post Cyrus Tate took part in warm-ups, but his right ankle swelled up and he couldn’t go Wednesday night at Wisconsin.
“He was really sore today,” Iowa Coach Todd Lickliter said. “I just did not want to set him back again. After shoot-around, he just did not have the mobility.
“I think all of you who have watched Cyrus know that when he plays, he is going to give you everything, so I was concerned that we were just going to give him another setback.”
Tate missed seven games with a severely sprained right ankle. He returned on Saturday against Northwestern and started. He played 13 minutes and scored two points.
“He was available (against Wisconsin), but I did not think it was a good decision (to play him),” Lickliter said.
