RK was really solid and might be one of the more under appreciated guys of Frans tenure. Would’ve gotten more minutes at just about any other D1 school in the country, but stuck it out to be Lukas backup.

Garza, Kriener and Nunge should have been one of the best front courts in Iowa history. Unfortunately Nunge couldn’t stay healthy.

At one point Iowa had all 3 and Tyler Cook.

The fact that they still haven’t gotten to the sweet 16 with that type of taken the up front under Fran speaks volumes to the point guard recruiting.

In some games he was tremendous. In other games he was a spazz and I fucking hated him. Perfect Hawkeye really.

Yeah let's not pretend that playing him more would only allow opportunities for positive plays. He had a lot of stupid shots and dumb plays. Fran's usage of him his final year was perfect. He was a role player, let's not make it more than it was.

Kriener is the perfect European player where the game is more free flowing. College basketball sucks for guys like him.

Tyler Cook getting his shot and making the most of it. Had 12/7/2 in 21 minutes against Charlotte and 13/3 in 16 minutes against Orlando.

I don’t remember him shooting five 3s let alone 21.
