Iowa yielded the first seven points of overtime as Creighton pulled away for an 84-72 victory in a women’s college basketball game Sunday in Iowa City. It followed a furious finish to regulation which saw Iowa’s Jenny Lillis sink a three-pointer with :29 remaining to give the Hawks a 70-67 lead. Creighton’s Sara Hildebrand responded with a three pointer 11 seconds later to send the game to overtime. Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says her team got outscored 14-2 in overtime on their home floor. She says that shot at the end of regulation burst Iowa’s bubble and “for some reason we didn’t have any life in that overtime.” The Hawkeyes had trouble scoring in overtime but Bluder says overall the defensive effort was sub-par.Iowa is now 6-4 and the Hawkeyes face a quick turn-a-tound. They play at Missouri Tuesday afternoon
