Iowa’s faint hopes of an NCAA at-large bid were dealt perhaps a deadly blow with Minnesota winning last night 65-57 at Williams Arena. The Hawks fall to 4-9 in the Big 10, 16-10 overall. Sophomore Adam Haluska led the Hawks with 19 points. He says he and his teammates need to just press on. Haluska says the Hawks just had too many problems.Hawkeye coach Steve Alford says maybe the pressure is off this team. As for last night, Alford says too many Minnesota offensive rebounds meant the Gophers got off too many shots. Alford liked his team’s effort, but they just didn’t stay with Minnesota defensively. Iowa plays at Penn State Saturday morning.
