IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Luka Garza scored 16 factors, Tyler Cook dinner had 15 factors with eight rebounds and Iowa rolled previous No. 16 Ohio State 72-62 on Saturday, handing the Buckeyes their third straight loss.

Ryan Kriener scored 11 factors for the Hawkeyes (14-3, 3-Three Huge Ten), who’ve received three straight after a 0-Three begin to league play.

Iowa used a 9-Zero run early within the second half to grab management, and Joe Wieskamp put Iowa forward 53-41 with 4 straight free throws.

Wieskamp had gotten to the road by drawing star Kaleb Wesson’s fourth foul, which got here with 8:23 left. Wesson was held to a season-low two factors on 1 of 5 taking pictures.

The flummoxed Buckeyes (12-4, 2-3) then threw a zone at Iowa, and Isaiah Moss drilled an open Three to make it 59-45. However Iowa’s raucous crowd went silent after Cook dinner — who missed Wednesday’s win at Northwestern with a sore knee — appeared to harm his left ankle and was taken to the locker room with 4:08 left.

Ohio State’s C.J. Jackson, the workforce’s second-leading scorer at 13.1 factors, didn’t begin for the primary time this season. He has been coping with leg cramps and completed with 10 factors earlier than fouling out with 20 seconds to go.

Andre Wesson had 13 factors for Ohio State, which dedicated a season-high 21 turnovers.


Ohio State: The Buckeyes acquired simply two factors from Wesson and Jackson within the first half — and led by two anyway. However Ohio State couldn’t cling with the Hawkeyes with Wesson and Jackson in a lot foul bother.

Iowa: This was about nearly as good because the Hawkeyes had regarded all season. They overcame early struggles on the perimeter by pounding it inside. However shedding Cook dinner for an prolonged stretch can be crucial.


Losses to Rutgers and Iowa, albeit on the street, aren’t superb methods to remain ranked. However will the Buckeyes tumble 10 spots and out of the ballot? It’ll be fascinating to see in the event that they do on Monday. The Hawkeyes, alternatively, may return to the ballot after a 2-Zero week.
