Fran McCaffery has seen his teams engineer come from behind wins in his coaching career. But there might not be many that compare to the one he coached on Sunday afternoon. McCaffery and the Hawkeyes fell behind by twenty points early in the second half and Iowa rallied for a 90-85 victory over Minnesota.

Following the win, McCaffery spoke to the media about the play of his son, Patrick, who played a key role in the second half comeback. He also talked about the performance of Owen Freeman, who battled through chipping a tooth to score 17 points and pulled down 14 rebounds. Finally, could this win provide a springboard for this team down the stretch of the season? He discusses that and more.
