Iowa led by nine in the second half before the Hoosiers turned the game around.

Joe Wieskamp had 16 points but he and Garza were the only Hawkeyes in double figures.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery who says the Hawkeyes ball movement on offense was lacking.

Iowa played the second half without starting guard CJ Fredrick who was nursing a lower leg injury. The Hawkeyes are 6-2 in the Big Ten and 12-3 overall.
