Iowa silenced a sellout crowd on Huskers Legends Weekend with a 21-2 run to close the first half in an eventual 74-46 victory over the Huskers Sunday afternoon.
The Hawkeyes (17-10, 8-6 Big Ten) led wire to wire, shooting 50 percent from the field with three players in double figures. Aaron White led Iowa with 18 points and 11 rebounds, while Peter Jok and Jarrod Uthoff chipped in 14 and 11 points, respectively.
Iowa’s 50 percent shooting not only was a season high, but snapped a streak of 37 straight games in which the Huskers held an opponent under 50 percent shooting dating back to last February.
Terran Petteway led Nebraska with 16 points. Walter Pitchford joined Petteway in double figures with 10 points, but the Huskers shot just 33 percent, including 2-of-18 from three-point range. Shavon Shields was held to just three points.
