The Iowa Hawkeye women pulled away in the second half for another road victory as they beat Minnesota 64-56 to improve to 5-3 in the Big Ten. “To have an 18 point lead with two minutes remaining in this game, I don’t remember coming to Minnesota and having that situation ever before, so it feels really good,” Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says.
Bluder says they have great balance and were one point away from having five players in double figures. The Hawkeyes dominated the glass in the second half with 9 offensive rebounds in the second half and were plus 10 in rebounds in the second half.
Iowa has won 5 of their last 6 games and improves to 17-5 overall.
They will be at home on Saturday to host Nebraska. “A team that’s kind of been a thorn in our side since joining the Big 10,” Bluder says of the Huskers. But she says they are feeling good about their play right now and get the Huskers at home.
Ally Disterhoft led Iowa with 13 points.
