Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says Kansas intensified the defense and her team backed off and had too many turnovers. Bluder says the Hawkeyes should learn a valuable lesson from this game. she says it shows the type of defense they have to go against every day in practice to be successful.
Bluder says they also have to work more on their fundamentals, and this is an opportunity to learn that. Iowa falls to 1-1 on the season.
