Thus far this season, the Iowa Hawkeyes have lived up to the lofty preseason expectations. The Hawkeyes got a big emotional win Tuesday vs one of college basketball’s “blue-bloods” in North Carolina by double digits. After a win like that it is relatively common to see a bit of a let down the next game. However, on Friday there was no let down for Iowa as they routed Iowa State in the hardwood version of the Cy-Hawk game 105-77. Hawkeyes led 52-41 at the half and in the second half tightened up their defense a bit allowing 36 2nd half points. Iowa’s offensive efficiency was impressive as they shot 54% from the field, turned it over just 7 times giving them a +10 turnover margin and had 20 assists on 37 made shots from the field. Iowa State got big offensive outputs from Javan Johnson with 20, Rasir Bolton with 18, and Jalen Coleman-Lands with 17. Which against a lot of opponents would have been enough but not against a team with the offensive explosiveness of Iowa. Luke Garza had a game high 34 in just 17 minutes and was 13 of 14 from the field. Jack Nunge had 17 and Joe “Weezy” Weiskamp added 16 for Iowa. Hawks had 11 players score and 9 players play more than 10 minutes, illustrating their depth. Iowa moves to 5-0 on the season, Iowa State falls to 1-2.
