NORTH LIBERTY, Ia. — Christian Williams never thought about leaving the Iowa basketball team after a disappointing sophomore season. And the 6-foot-6 guard made it clear Sunday that he’s not coming back intending to fill a minor role on what will be a deep 2017-18 team. "It was just the fact that I had to understand what was going on and what the team needed," Williams said of his transition from starting point guard to a bench player averaging 13 minutes of playing time per game.
IOWA CITY, Ia. — It feels like college football is coming fast. Yet it's still a long way out, with 11 weeks until Iowa's Sept. 2 season opener against Wyoming. Which is it? Maybe a little of both. But there's no doubt that this is the season for speculation and curiosity about how good the Hawkeyes — and the other 129 FBS teams — will be in 2017.
Iowa Hawkeye fans, your annual summer basketball fix is almost here. The Prime Time League draft is Monday, and games get underway at 3 p.m. Sunday at the North Liberty Community Center.

Yes, defense is often optional in summer league play. Yes, these are only exhibitions, intended for fun.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
