The Iowa Hawkeyes dropped their third straight game 95-85 last night at Michigan. The Hawkeyes trailed 50-32 at the half but rallied in the second half and got as close as four points before the Wolverines put the game away at the free throw line. Iowa coach Steve Alford says a lackluster first half was costly and a big factor in that was lack of production off the bench.An early 17-4 run helped Michigan build a 22-point lead in the opening half. He says it’s unfortunate they way they handled that run.Dean Oliver led Iowa with 26-points. Freshman guard Brody Boyd got his first start and responded with 23-points, including six three pointers.Boyd says Alford was upset at halftime, saying it was “quite embarrassing.”
