Three weeks after sitting in the basement of the Big Ten the Iowa Hawkeye women are now tied for fourth. The Hawks exploded to a 22 point lead at the half and rolled past Minnesota 75-54, their seventh win in eight games.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says the game felt good and with a 22 point lead at the half, there was not much to complain about. She says the team got momentum early in the first half.

Iowa is 8-7 in the Big Ten and 15-11 overall.
