BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA — A tough night on the road for the 21st ranked Iowa Hawkeyes last night as Indiana connected on a season high 11 three pointers and beat the Hawkeyes 89-77, as you heard on AM-1300 KGLO. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery.

Luka Garza had 38 points to lead the Hawkeyes who played much of the game without freshman guard C.J. Fredrick. The Big Ten’s leading three point shooter suffered an ankle injury midway through the opening half.

Garza says another key was 16 Indiana offensive rebounds.

Iowa drops to 17-8 overall and 8-6 in the Big Ten. They play at Minnesota on Sunday, a game that starts at noon on KGLO.



COLLEGE PARK, MARYLAND — It was all Maryland in a first place showdown against the 17th ranked Iowa women. Kaila Charles scored 21 points and the 10th ranked Terrapins forced 27 Hawkeye turnovers in a 93-59 win. Iowa coach Lisa Bluder

Bluder says the Hawkeyes had too many turnovers to make it competitive.

Monica Czinano led Iowa with 15 points. Mason City native Makenzie Meyer had six points, two rebounds and one assist, but also had a team-high seven turnovers. Sister Megan Meyer played the final two minutes of the game, hitting a three-pointer for her only points. The Hawkeyes fall to 11-3 in the Big Ten.
