February 15th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Peter Jok scored 27 points and Jarrod Uthoff had 24 points, 15 rebounds and six blocked shots to help fourth-ranked Iowa hold off skidding Minnesota 75-71 on Sunday night. Iowa rebounded from Thursday’s loss at Indiana to regain sole possession of first place in the Big Ten.

Nate Mason scored 14 points to lead Minnesota, which has lost 14 straight games. Uthoff overcame a slow start shooting by recording a big dunk, three blocks and a pair of free throws in the final 1:17 to help secure the victory for the Hawkeyes (20-5, 11-2).

Jok shot 8 of 14 and hit four 3-pointers. Minnesota (6-19, 0-13) cut Iowa’s lead to 66-64 on two free throws by Joey King with 2:58 remaining, but the Gophers went 2 of 8 from the field in the final 2 minutes.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Georges Niang and Monte Morris each scored 24 points as Number 14 Iowa State beat 24th-ranked Texas 85-75 Saturday night in Jameel McKay’s return from a two-game suspension. Matt Thomas added 13 for the Cyclones (18-7, 7-5 Big 12), who allowed just one point in the final 2:29 to hold off the Longhorns.

Morris’ step-back jumper with 1:17 left made it 81-74, and Niang’s layup 35 seconds later sealed the win for Iowa State. Javan Felix had 13 of his 18 points in the second half to lead Texas (16-9, 7-5), which has dropped two straight. McKay, who had been suspended for violating team rules, finished with eight points, seven rebounds and four blocks.
