Big Rally Gives Iowa men B1G Road Win

Big Rally Gives Iowa men B1G Road Win

Iowa was down by as much as 20 points Thursday night against IL.

That didn't phase the Hawkeyes, who went on to win 104-97 in overtime collecting their first Big Ten win of the season.

IL led by as many as 20 in the first half and by 13 at halftime, but Iowa closed the gap quickly with a 10-0 run to open the second half.

IL tried to overcome a number of obstacles, including a suspension and the flu, and appeared to be well on its way as it built a 49-29 lead with just under four minutes to play in the first half.

IL ranks 46th in assists allowed per game (11.5) while Iowa ranks 182nd (14.7). The defense, especially guarding the 3-point line, was nonexistent and the offense could not hang on to the ball. January 11 marked the first time the Hawkeyes scored 100 or more points in a Big Ten game since 1995 and the first time doing so on the road in conference play since 1988.

Sophomore forward Tyler Cook added 21 points and 13 rebounds for his second double-double of the year while freshman center Luke Garza posted 19 points and 11 rebounds for his third double-double.

Despite a running 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to overtime, Iowa left State Farm Center with its first Big Ten win of the season, 104-97, over IL.

IL came into Thursday night as one of the more offensively challenged teams. After halftime, IL only forced 6 additional turnovers from Iowa. Shortly thereafter, Black picked up his fifth foul, sent to the bench after scoring 18 points, 12 in the second half alone. They're the only two Illini players averaging in double-digits but Aaron Jordan is close on 9.9 PPG. Kipper Nichols put together a solid performance for IL, leading both teams in scoring with 17 points on 6-for-11 shooting. Iowa deserves credit for battling back from being down 49-29 on the road and coming out with a win. Illinois' Tony Wysinger had 34 points of 13-of-16 shooting.

Both teams had freshman that starred on this night. Of the Hawkeyes' 14 games that accepted bets, nine have finished over the projected point total.

F Leron Black R-Jr. Most importantly, Garza went 9-9 at the free throw line as well.

IL finally got an extra chance thanks to Frazier's improbable 3 at the buzzer to force an extra period.

IL (10-8, 0-5) received a career-high 27 points from Frazier, who entered the night with 18 3-pointers in 17 games but canned 7 of 11 shots from 3-point range. Every time IL needed a big shot, Frazier stepped up and made it. Frazier tied the game with a one-legged three at the buzzer in regulation.

Cook said he looked around at his teammates' eyes in the huddle prior to the overtime period and knew the game was in hand. 3-Point Goals-Iowa 7-24 (Bohannon 5-12, Baer 2-5, Garza 0-1, Dailey 0-1, Cook 0-1, Moss 0-4), IL 14-30 (Frazier 7-11, Jordan 4-8, Williams 1-2, Nichols 1-2, Alstork 1-2, Smith 0-2, Finke 0-3).

Iowa scored 104 points tonight, its highest total ever against IL dating back to 1908 (previous high was 97 in 1995).

It certainly was not ideal. But less than three minutes into the second half, the Hawkeyes changed that tune with emphasis.

The Panthers will return to action at home on Saturday Jan. 13 at 1 pm vs. Belmont. Jordan Bohannon's dagger 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining stretched the Hawkeye lead to 99-90.
