The Iowa Hawkeyes are expected to lose a few key playmakers from their 2021-22 roster. The good news, however, is that Connor McCaffery will return for another season.

On Thursday night, McCaffery announced his decision to return to Iowa on his Twitter account. He posted a video with this caption: "Let's run it back."

McCaffery opened up about his future at Iowa during the team's awards ceremony on Thursday night.

"Last night, I sat down thinking of what I was going to say for my senior speech," McCaffery said, via KCCI. "So, then I thought, 'You know what? I'll wait to do it next year.'"

This past season, McCaffery averaged 2.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game for the Hawkeyes.

McCaffery doesn't stuff the stat sheet for Iowa, but he's a solid contributor off the bench who also happens to be a leader in the locker room.

The current expectation is that McCaffery will play a similar role for the Hawkeyes in 2023.
