Bisho Heelan graduate Zach McCabe says senior day will be emotional on Saturday.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
It's senior day for Iowa on Saturday against Illinois. Bishop Heelan grad Zach McCabe is one of three Hawkeyes who will play their final game at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
McCabe has scored 752 points in his Hawkeye career, with exactly 500 rebounds.
Like any college player, McCabe has had his ups and downs. He went from being a starter as a sophomore to coming off the bench as a junior and senior. McCabe also had a well-publicized Twitter feud with fans this season but he's proud to be a Hawkeye.
"I love all Iowa fans. I love going to Iowa. It's a great school," said McCabe. "I couldn't say enough for the appreciation I have for all the fans and all the coaches and all my teammates. It's going to be an emotional time for me. I'll be ready to go."
Iowa's other two seniors are Roy-Devyn Marble and Melsahn Basabe. Iowa and Illinois play at 7:30 Saturday on the Big Ten Network.
