Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery spoke with the media on Monday as his team prepared for its Big Ten opener against New Year's Eve against Nebraska. Check out what the Hawkeye head man had to say about the Huskers right here.

Adam Woodbury stands out. That tends to happen when you're 7-foot-1.

The Sioux City product arrived at Iowa with a lot of fanfare as a Top 50 player nationally in his recruiting class. He chose the Hawkeyes over North Carolina.

Like many big men adjusting to the jump from high school to college, Woodbury has experienced his ups and downs. Most recently, the ups have far exceeded the downs.

In 18 minutes against Arkansas-Pine Bluff in Iowa's last game, Woodbury stuffed the stat sheet. He scored 10 points, dished out four assists, grabbed four rebounds and had two steals. He pulled down 11 rebounds in 25 minutes at Iowa State.

Woodbury will play against more traditional centers in the Big Ten play, which opens for the Hawkeyes Tuesday night against Nebraska at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

"He just keeps getting better," Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery said during a Monday morning teleconference. "He's much more comfortable. He's feeling good about himself physically. He's feeling good about what we expect from him and what we're going to ask him to do.

"He's always been a smart, tough player. He's going to lock into the game plan, physically bang and not back down from anybody."

McCaffery talked more about his sophomore center, the Huskers and other topics. You can hear what the coach had to say in this audio of his entire teleconference:
