FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) — Samantha Logic gave Iowa a glimpse of a bright future despite a tough early season loss. The Hawkeyes lost to No. 5 Texas A&M 74-58 on Saturday, but their 5-foot-9 freshman guard had 16 points and nine rebounds, including five offensive boards in the Lucaya Division championship game at the Junkanoo Jam. Sydney Carter led A&M with 21 points, including 17 in the first half. Adaora Elonu added 13 points for the defending national champs and Kelsey Bone scored 12 points, 10 in the second half. Logic hit 7 of 15 from the field and 2 of 2 free throws for her 16 points. Carter hit 6 of 16 shots and 9 of 10 free throws, adding four steals and four assists to earn MVP honors. Texas A&M forced 25 turnovers, while only turning the ball over 13 times.

Iowa (4-2) hosts Virginia Tech on Wednesday, and the Aggies enter a challenging stretch with a game against No. 15 Purdue on Dec. 4, followed by a visit to No. 2 Connecticut on Dec. 6.
