Hawkeyes vs. Florida vs. Kansas

So who do you like in that basketball recruiting battle?

Ran across a photo of Iowa men’s basketball coach Todd Lickliter discussing something with Kansas Coach Bill Self and Florida’s Billy Donovan last Friday night in Marshalltown. Bet it was Harrison Barnes.

The Ames junior star was in M-town to help his top-ranked Little Cyclones beat Marshalltown in a sold-out Roundhouse. That’s the name of Marshalltown’s gym, which is humongous, high school-wise, by the way.

My guess is the conversation went something like this:

Lickliter: “I’ll tell you what, guys. I promise not to recruit any guys out of Florida or Kansas in the next 10 years, if you lay off this Barnes kid. How many national titles do you need, anyway?”

Donovan is obviously dumb-founded (look at the photo). Self is simply astonished (again, look at the photo).
