After clinching the Big Ten championship over Rutgers on March 9, the University of Iowa women’s basketball team — led by coach Lisa Bluder and Big Ten Player of the Year Megan Gustafson — will enter the NCAA Tournament Friday with the home-court advantage. Carver Hawkeye Arena will host the Hawks’ first-round game against the Mercer Bears at 2 p.m. Friday, followed by Drake v. Missouri.

Fans flocking into town from Des Moines, Missouri, Georgia and beyond will need to eat. Building off a tweet from @ChinLovesIowa, Think Iowa City’s Twitter account has been prompting local food enthusiasts to list their 10 favorite Iowa City-area dining spots ahead of the NCAA tournament with the hashtag #ICFoodie.

Some have taken the list beyond restaurants. Jalyn Souchek included Carver’s own ice cream cone in her list. The vanilla, chocolate and twist soft-serve is perhaps the arena’s most sought-after concession.

What area restaurants or food items would make your top 10 list?
