BASE: Two Hawks Honored by College Sports Madness

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa juniors Jake Yacinich and Jake Mangler have been selected as College Sports Madness All-Big Ten honorees.  Yacinich was named to the first team, Mangler to the second team.

Mangler, a second baseman from Clinton, Iowa, is batting .330 with a team-high 44 RBIs as a junior.  He has been clutch with runners in scoring position, producing at a .388 clip with 18 RBIs coming with two outs.  Mangler is third on the team with 20 multi-hit games and leads the squad with 13 multi-RBI contests.  He enters the postseason riding a career-long 29-game reached base streak dating back to March 28.

The eighth-seeded Hawkeyes return to action Wednesday, squaring off against top-seeded Indiana in the opening round of the Big Ten Tournament.  Game time is set for 5 p.m. (CT) at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.  The game will be televised live on BTN.
