Iowa's McCaffery Looking to Rebuild Hawks Roster
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The door to Iowa's locker room has been a revolving one in recent years. Players came and went so much that coach Todd Lickliter found himself out of a job after just three seasons.

The departures have continued under new coach Fran McCaffery. He's been in Iowa City for less than three weeks but has already lost three players _ forward Aaron Fuller and recruits Ben Brust and Cody Larson.

The upbeat McCaffery insists he isn't about to let the departures weigh him down as he dives into the arduous task of rebuilding the once-proud Hawkeyes.

McCaffery says he'll get good players to come to Iowa, adding that he can sell both the program and the institution.
