Iowa City, Iowa — Keegan Murray had 22 of his career high 29 points in the opening half as Iowa rolled to a 109-61 win over Western Michigan.
Murray was 10 of 14 from the field but says it was defense that set the tone.
Iowa’s half court trap was a factor in 24 Bronco turnovers.
Freshman Payton Sandfort had 19 points, including five of seven from three point range and sophomore Tony Perkins added 15. Murray says the Hawkeyes are building depth in their 5-0 start.
The Hawkeyes host Portland State Friday night.
