Women’s College hoops: Iowa 70 Northwestern 61

Sports

February 11th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

(Hawkeye Sports.com) — The Iowa Hawkeye women’s basketball team came away from Evanston, IL with a 70-61 victory over the Northwestern Wildcats, Sunday afternoon. With the win, the Hawkeyes have reached 20-or-more wins nine times in the last 11 seasons.

The Hawkeyes improved to 20-6 overall, 8-5 in the Big Ten by shooting 57 percent from the field and leading for 37 ½ minutes in front of 1,363 inside Beardsley Gymnasium. Iowa is 4-0 in the month of February.

Junior center Megan Gustafson scored 25 points with 16 rebounds, marking the 24th time this season she has recorded a double-double. She now has 51 career double-doubles. Gustafson made 10-of-12 field goals and was 5-of-5 from the line.

Two other Hawkeyes scored in double figures: sophomore Kathleen Doyle added 15 points with six assists and four steals and sophomore Makenzie Meyer scored 12 points. Meyer was 5-of-8 from the field and made two 3-point field goals.

Pulliam was one of three Wildcats to score in double figures with 11 points, but she was limited to 3-of-11 shooting from the field with three turnovers. Iowa junior Hannah Stewart logged 20 minutes and scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field. She swiped three steals.

Gustafson moved past Toni Foster (1,606 points from 1989-93) into No. 8 on Iowa’s all-time career scoring list. Gustafson has 1,626 career points. She also moved to No. 4 on Iowa’s all-time career rebounds list, surpassing Morgan Johnson (886 from 2010-13) and Foster (887). Gustafson has 901 career rebounds.

Iowa moved above .500 in Big Ten road games at 4-3. The Hawkeyes have won their last two away from home (Michigan State and Northwestern). The Hawkeyes return to action Feb. 18, hosting Wisconsin (9-17, 2-11) on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m. (CT). The Badgers lost at Nebraska on Sunday, 51-48.

No. 14 Ohio State drops Iowa 82-64, takes Big Ten lead

Sports

February 11th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Keita Bates-Diop had 14 points and eight rebounds, and No. 14 Ohio State beat Iowa 82-64 on Saturday for sole possession of first place in the Big Ten. Kaleb Wesson added 18 points and C.J Jackson scored 14 for the Buckeyes (21-5, 13-1 Big Ten), who were 9 for 20 from 3-point range. Leading scorer Tyler Cook had just eight points for the Hawkeyes (12-15, 3-11).

The Buckeyes are a full game ahead of No. 3 Purdue and No. 4 Michigan State in the Big Ten standings and hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over both teams. The Buckeyes do not play either team in their four remaining games.

The Hawkeyes have lost three straight games and sit two games behind 10th place in the Big Ten, meaning they would be one of four teams to play on the first day of the conference tournament. Iowa plays at No. 20 Michigan, on Wednesday.

Jensen’s 35 lifts No. 22 Oklahoma St over Iowa St 81-73

February 11th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Kaylee Jensen scored 16 straight points in the fourth quarter for Oklahoma State and finished with a career-high 35 and the No. 22 Cowgirls held on to defeat Iowa State 81-73 on Saturday night after giving up a 26-point lead.

Jensen steadied Oklahoma State (18-6, 9-4 Big 12) after Iowa State (10-14, 4-9) cut a 26-point deficit late in the second quarter to two points with a 30-12 third quarter. Jensen went 5 of 6 from the floor and 6 of 6 from the foul line.

Despite Jensen, the Hawkeyes were within 76-73 after Bridget Carleton’s jumper with 46 seconds left. Then Rae Johnson blocked a shot by OSU’s Loryn Goodwin out of bounds with 19.3 seconds left. With just a tick on the shot clock, Braxtin Miller received the inbounds pass and hit a 3-pointer, which was ruled in time after a lengthy video review. ISU then turned the ball over and the Cowgirls added two more free throws.

The Cyclones tied the school record with 30 points, helped by six 3-pointers, in the third quarter. The record was established when they won 78-69 at Oklahoma State last month. Jensen finished 12 of 18 from the field, 11 of 14 from the line and had 12 rebounds. Goodwin had 23 points and Miller 11.

Madison Wise had a career-high 21 for Iowa State and Emily Durr had 19.
