The Iowa Hawkeyes basketball season is approaching fast. This season brings with it more excitement and anticipation than the Hawkeyes have seen since the Horner and Brunner days.
Fran McCaffery's squad will attempt to be in the mix for an NCAA Tournament bid, and possibly even compete for a Big Ten Title.
The Hawkeyes have finalized their roster and have held an open practice at Carver Hawkeye Arena for the public to get their first glimpse of the 2011-2012 Hawks.
The Hawkeyes have some familiar faces, like senior Matt Gatens, and some new faces that fans will become familiar with quickly.
Here is a list ranking all of the current Hawkeyes and their ranking according to my predicted values to the team. This is a sort of preseason MVP ranking to gauge who will likely be the least valuable to who will be the move valuable to the Hawkeyes success this season.
