IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Devyn Marble continued his red-hot shooting with 27 points, leading Iowa to a 90-46 rout of South Carolina State on Wednesday night. The Hawkeyes (10-2) are off to their best start since 2004-05. Marble scored 21 points in the first half — one more than South Carolina State (4-8) did as a team. The junior guard connected on a season-high six 3-pointers. He played only four minutes in the second half.

The Hawkeyes led 11-9 early in the first half when they exploded with a 19-4 run during a six-minute stretch. Matthew Hezekiah led South Carolina State with 12 points. The Bulldogs shot only 25 percent from the floor.
