It was another in a string of frustrating losses for the Iowa Hawkeyes Saturday at Purdue. The Hawks fell behind by 17-points in the second half then saw a late rally come up short in a 73-68 loss. The Hawks, considered a contender this season, find themselves tied for ninth in the league race.Senior guard Luke Recker who led the Hawkeyes 20-points, says they have to look inside themselves and get something figured out. Purdue sank nine three pointers in the game and Recker says that has been a recurring problem for the Hawks. Iowa coach Steve Alford says the Hawkeyes made too many mistakes to win on the road. He says his team had more turnovers and fewer free throws and that makes it hard to win on the road.The Hawkeyes return to action Saturday against Penn State and Alford says it will be a good chance to look ahead to the second half of the Big Ten season.
