Iowa got the first basket of the game to lead 2-0, but that was as good as it got for the Hawkeyes who fell to Indiana in Bloomington 79-51 last night.Hawkeye Coach Steve Alford says it was a very embarrassing showing and he takes full responsibility for it. The game was senior Luke Recker’s first back in Bloomington since he transferred from Indiana. Recker scored that first bucket but ended up with only eight points. Alford says the hoopla surrounding Recker ended up being a distraction.Reggie Evans also had eight points to match Recker as the leading scorer.Not a single Hawkeye hit double figures, something Alford says he hasn’t seen before. But he says there are a lot of things that’ve happened this year that he hasn’t seen before.Alford says it’s back to the drawing board again he says “we’re a soft basketball team that’s got to get tougher.”The Hawkeyes are now 15-9 overall and fell to 4-6 in the Big Ten.
