Iowa Basketball: Complete Roster, Season Preview for 2013-14 Hawkeyes
USA TODAY Sports
Roy Devyn Marble and the Hawkeyes have NCAA Tournament dreams in 2013-14.

Ninety-three percent.  That number alone means nothing, but for Fran McCaffery's Iowa Hawkeyes, it spells success for the 2013-14 season, with 93 percent of the scoring returning from last season's NIT runner-up squad.

Led by senior point guard Roy Devyn Marble and junior forward Aaron White, Iowa could be primed for a return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006.

Years of dwindling attendance and minimal talent have finally given way to an up-tempo style and a roster loaded with depth.

The Hawkeyes fell just short of an NCAA Tournament appearance last season, thanks to a loaded Big Ten, a late-season loss to Nebraska and, most importantly, a paltry preseason schedule.

Iowa's first five games set up to be a walk in the park against bottom feeders, but a spot in Battle 4 Atlantis should boost the Hawkeyes' Ratings Percentage Index.

The field includes Kansas, Villanova, Tennessee and a USC team now coached by Andy Enfield of "Dunk City" fame.

A difficult conference schedule makes a strong preseason showing a must for McCaffery's team.

Here's a closer look at the key players, subplots and predictions for the Hawkeyes.
