The Iowa Hawkeye women gained a measure of revenge against Purdue in Iowa City. After getting hammered by the Boilermakers 81-59 on the road back on January 17th the Hawks paid them back on Sunday by jumping out to a 19-1 lead enroute to a 70-50 victory.
Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says they talked about redemption after playing poorly at Purdue on national television. She says the Hawks were a more rested team, and that was to their advantage as Purdue had three games this week. Bluder says they didn’t shoot the ball well, but their rebounding and defense were good.
Iowa has won three straight and is now 4-6 in the Big Ten.
