Iowa's Woodbury doesn't feel appreciated

Hawkeye sophomore center Adam Woodbury says his toughness can help put Iowa over the top. Hawkeye sophomore center Adam Woodbury says his toughness can help put Iowa over the top.

When you're over seven-feet tall, you naturally get a lot of attention.  Iowa center Adam Woodbury has been gawked at and scrutinized since he was at Sioux City East Middle School. His game is still being judged harshly by some Hawkeye fans.

Woodbury got some national attention when he dunked against Michigan and then asked the home fans to quiet down, apparently asking his critics to quiet down about his lack of dunks.

For the record, the sophomore is averaging five points and four rebounds a game. Woodbury has started all 25 games, averaging 16 minutes a night but he's feeling a litter under-appreciated.

"I feel I bring a lot to the table that doesn't always show up in the stat book," said Woodbury. "If critics want to say this and that about my numbers, but I think I bring something to the team that maybe we don't have on any given night. I think my numbers are going to come as I get older and more mature. I don't really score a lot and I don't grab a ton of boards. I might not always put up big numbers but I think my toughness can help put our team over the top where we need to be."

Iowa's game at Indiana on Tuesday was postponed after an eight-foot piece of metal fell onto seats at Assembly Hall. No makeup date has been announced.
