For the Hawkeyes it was their fourth loss in five games and they are now 3-4 in the Big Ten.Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says it slipped through their hands and they missed a great opportunity to gain a win on their home floor. Center Jamie Cavey led Iowa with 22 points but she did not score in the final nine and a half minutes of the game. Bluder says they feel Cavey is so good they need to look to get her the ball. Iowa is 14-4 overall and returns to action Thursday night at home against Michigan.
