Hawkeye Sports reports that fans can watch the game on the jumbotron at Carver from the east side of the arena in sections NN, N, M, L, MM, LL, and KK. Parking will be free in all surrounding lots with no reserved parking at the event.

Even though the game won't be played on the court, it will still feel a lot like an Iowa home game. There will be in-game entertainment and the Hawkeye Fan Shop and concession stands will be open. Patrons can even enjoy beer and wine on Friday night, according to Hawkeye Sports.

A reminder to all fans heading to Iowa City for the event, the University's clear bag policy will be enforced.
