Michigan Basketball: 3 takeaways from blowout win over Iowa

MI had five players in double figures as they dominated Iowa, 74-53, Friday night at the United Center in Chicago.

Iowa's hot shooting from Thursday night's win over IL wore off. Sixth-seeded Iowa trailed 40-27 at halftime.

Turning point: Iowa scored four points in the final five minutes of the half, while Michigan's Isaiah Livers poured in nine.

They are the final game of the night, and will take on Iowa, who beat No. 11 IL on Thursday. This, a night after the Hawkeyes were 12 of 23 from deep in a second-round win over IL.

It was more of the same in the second half.

In addition to the red-hot shooting effort from beyond the arc, MI was dominant defensively against a really solid Iowa team that is headed to the NCAA tournament.

Tyler Cook and Luka Garza led Iowa with 14 points apiece.

Iowa's record falls to 22-11.
