(IOWA CIT-Y, Iowa) — The (17) Iowa Hawkeyes (18-6) stormed past (10) Michigan Wolverines (17-6) on Saturday, 85-67.
Iowa guard Roy Devyn Marble scored 22 of his 26 points in the first half in the victory.
”I just wanted to come out and be aggressive,” Marble said. ”I just told the guys come out here and play hard. If we win, we win, if we lose, we lose. But you won’t be able to doubt our lack of toughness and our energy on both ends of the court.”
Iowa led 43-29 at the half and never looked back.
“Iowa punched us early today, and it was hard to respond,” Michigan coach John Beilein said. “This is how they were playing early in the season no matter who they were playing.”
Hawkeyes forward Aaron White added 11 points and guard Mike Gesell chipped in with 10.
“When Dev got hot, I was just finding him and finding my shooters,” Gesell said. “It’s really not that hard of a job when you have guys that can score like that.”
