(IOWA CITY, Iowa) — After a close first-half, Iowa proved to be too much for Minnesota as the Hawkeyes cruised past the Gophers 94-73.
Minnesota led 43-41 after the first half, but Iowa wound up outscoring Minnesota 53-30 in the second-half.
With Aaron White dealing with foul trouble most of the game, Josh Oglesby came off the bench to score a season-high 17 points for Iowa.
Oglesby led an Iowa bench that scored 43 points in the game.
“It’s just a further example of the talent we have across the board,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said after the win. “When you’re having 40 points off the bench, it presents all kinds of problems for them.”
With the win, Iowa improves to 15-3, and 4-1 in the Big Ten, while Minnesota falls to 14-5, and 3-3 in the Big Ten.
Despite the foul trouble, White was still able to lead Iowa with 18 points, while Andre Hollins scored a game-high 20 points for Minnesota.
