The Iowa Hawkeye women roared back from a 17-point second half deficit to win at Minnesota 58-56 in their Big Ten opener.
Iowa coach Lisa Bluder called it a “great win” opening on the road. Bluder says coming back from the large deficit showed the real Iowa team. After committing 16 turnovers in the opening half the Hawks turned it over just six times in the second half.
Bluder says it would have been easy to give up, but her team came out and fought in the second half to get back into the game. Iowa hosts seventh ranked Ohio State on Sunday.
