Iowa hits century mark in exhibition win


November 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa basketball team jumped out to a 22-2 lead at the outset and cruised by Quincy University 100-54 in a Sunday exhibition game. The added depth of this season was on display as freshman Mike Gessell led four players in double figures with 18 points.
Despite the victory, Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says there are plenty of things to work on. The Hawkeyes open the regular season at home on Friday night against Texas Pan-American. The teams lone senior, Eric May, came off the bench to score 15 points. May says while the Hawkeyes reached the century mark the best part of the game was their defense.
