WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA — Purdue carved up Iowa’s defense in a lopsided win in Mackey Arena. The Boilermakers led by as many as 26 points in an 86-70 win.
That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Hawkeyes were without injured center Luka Garza for the third straight game. McCaffery says his injured ankle is not yet 100 percent.
Tyler Cook led the Hawkeyes with 24 points but says there were too many defensive breakdowns.
The Hawks are 0-3 in the Big Ten and will try to get things turned around Sunday at home against Nebraska.
Purdue’s bench outscored Iowa’s depleted bench 39-10. Boiler coach Matt Painter.
Sunday’s Iowa-Nebraska game can be heard on KGLO starting with the pre-game at 3:30 and the tipoff scheduled for 4:30
IOWA CITY — The 19th ranked Iowa Hawkeye women held off a late comeback by Nebraska for a 77-71 win in Iowa City. It snapped the Huskers’ nine game Big Ten road winning streak.
That’s Iowa coach Lisa Bluder, who says the Hawkeyes had too many turnovers at crunch time.
Megan Gustafson led the way for Iowa with 28 points and 17 rebounds. Mason City native Makenzie Meyer played 32 minutes, scoring two points and handing out five assists. Iowa is now 10-3 overall and 1-1 in the conference and will host Wisconsin Monday night in a game you’ll hear on KGLO starting at 7 o’clock.
