Freshman Josh Ogelsby scored 16 points, including four of seven from three point range as the Iowa Hawkeyes rolled past Northern Illinois 88-55 in Iowa City. Ogelsby says he was nervous the first couple of games but his coaches told him to come out and play like he was still in high school.
Ogelsby says the quick start and says that gave him confidence. He says anyone who misses their first couple of shots gets down, but if you hit them you start to get into a groove and feel like you’re playing better.
The Hawkeyes are now 3-0 but Ogelsby says the schedule gets much tougher as the Hawks will take on Creighton Sunday afternoon in Des Moines. He says they are excited to see where they are at as a team and will have a big test Sunday.
