Junior Jordan Bohannon scored 11 of his game-high 25 points in the final 90 seconds, leading the 20th-ranked University of Iowa men's basketball team to a 77-72 road victory over in on Thursday night at Assembly Hall.
"That was a really big win for us", said Bohannon. Cook leads the Hawkeyes with an average of 16.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game while Bohannon leads Iowa in assists with 3.3 assists per game this season. Then the Hawkeyes' 3-point shooters warmed up and helped the Hawkeyes pull out to a 46-36 lead at the half.
"When the people I'm playing get into foul trouble, they start to hesitate", Gustafson said.
Justin Jenifer scored 14 and Tre Scott finished with 13 points and nine rebounds as Cincinnati (20-3, 9-1 American Athletic Conference), which moved into the Top 25 this week, won its eighth straight.
Bohannon's closing flurry was even better.
Twice in the final 91 seconds, he beat the shot clock with demoralizing, long 3-pointers and then he finished it off by making five of six free throws in the 27 seconds to prevent in from even getting a chance to tie the score.
"In his 16 minutes", In coach Archie Miller said, "he didn't have what I would consider a solid game". "They made big baskets and really timely baskets". Of course, the reason he only played 22 minutes was that he was called for four fouls by the 16:49 mark of the second half and couldn't play much down the stretch. The Hoosiers allowed just two baskets over the next 7 1/2 minutes and eventually closed to 64-61 with 3:47 left. But Langford missed a 3-point attempt that would have tied game, and Cook answered with a turnaround jumper at the shot-clock buzzer to put the Hawkeyes up 66-61 with 2:23 remaining.
Langford finished with 22 points and five rebounds while Morgan had 17 points to lead the Hoosiers.
"We came down here past year and played well for 32 minutes". "You can't do that here".
Cook scored 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds, while freshman Joe Wieskamp scored 13 points - 12 coming in the first half.
Winning on the road in the Big 10 is never easy.
Iowa Hawkeyes guard Jordan Bohannon (3) dribbles the ball while Indiana Hoosiers guard Devonte Green (11) defends in the first half at Assembly Hall. But the first half doomed them. To turn this season around, they need to play a consistent 40 minutes.
"That's obviously in the back of our minds", guard Kathleen Doyle said. Durham was the only other player to score in double figures. IN was 13 of 18 from the free-throw line, missing 4 of 11 in the second half. "I think really the execution wasn't".
Tipoff is set for 6:30 p.m. ET from Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
