The Iowa Hawkeyes picked up only their 10th win of the season Sunday, downing Indiana 73-57. It was Indiana’s 10th straight loss and gave Iowa the season sweep. Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says it was a good win coming off a big loss Thursday against Northwestern. Lickliter says the only thing worse from learning from experience, is not learning from experience. He says it looked like they learned from the Northwestern loss and were playing better and it paid off with the win.
Matt Gatens led Iowa with a career high 25 points. Lickliter says Gatens showed a lot of poise and the play inside helped as it allowed him to drive to the basket.
Devan Bawinkle was the lone senior for Iowa, and played in his last home game. He says it felt good to leave with a win and he was really happy.
Iowa is 4-12 in the Big Ten and at 10-19.
