Brown: Kirk Speraw Gave Heart to Hawkeyes

I could always hear the voice, whether I was attending an Iowa men’s basketball game in person or watching it on TV.

Whenever the shot clock melted under 10 seconds during a Hawkeye possession, a familiar voice from the bench would start the countdown.

‘Nine…8…9…7…6,’ letting the team know that time was slipping away.

That voice belonged to Kirk Speraw. Which is not surprising, because he did all he could to make Iowa’s basketball program a success. And his work often took place far from the public eye.
