looking to go 5-0 in the big ten for the first time in 19 years. today, the hawkeyes welcomed michigan to iowa city. ... it was a sold out crowd at carver hawkeye arena ... iowa got off to a very fast start... jarrod uthoff fires a three off the dribble, and him... hawkeyes led 11-0 to start the game ... later, michigan responded with a 13-0 run of their own... the back door dunk gives the wolverines a 21-20 lead ... but iowa doesn't panic... watch the big man, adam he's going to try and it home... that got the crowd fired up... iowa led 38-33 at halftime ... 2nd half, iowa starts to heat up from three-point range... peter jok with the step back three... he had 16 points ... later, anthony clemmons left wide open for three... he sticks it... iowa up by 11... they hit 10 three- pointers, seven of them came in the 2nd half alone
scoring... he puts on a couple of nice moves two more of his 23 points... iowa goes on to win 82-71 scott saville and jess settles have more from carver iowa raises their big 10 record to 5-0 and jess they got off to a tremendous start. this is the best i have seen mike gesell play he only took four shots but in the first few minutes instead of driving he slowed it up and found the opener shooter and got the lead and the crowd into the game. it was a game of run michigan actually took the lead but iowa responded and show a lot of toughness. we kind of soften up on defense after the run so we just regrouped and focused on defense. i think what is really seperating them right now is the bench play. how bout dom uhl coming off the bench and hitting the big shots now against the wolverines. nick baer's iq is off the charts and he was a zone buster today. and the man wagner continues to give woody those big minutes he has a big 10 body and he has arrived. it allowed woody the floor like he did for the dunk. i used to be more gracefull than that didn't
magic johnson. i just holded my head. nothing to it. ive done it in practice it is what it is the fans appreciate it more than i do. at the end of the game big time players take over and they did. uthof had smaller michigan guards he could take them to the rim hit the step back 3 he has been the player of the year in the big 10. and the peter jok it must be the kobe shoes he is wearing he is hitting all the big shots. coach fran said i had to pick it up in the second half so i just came out more aggressive. i just let the game come to me and i think that is very important fo rall of us. jok and uthoff are doing a good job getting open and knocking down shots. this team is deep and talanand and they know how to win close games. 5-0 and now and you got to think this team can hanlde it with all the seniors. they can they don't even celebrate it as usual one game at a time but they are fun to watch. back to you i the studio.

"it's truly remarkable what the guys have been able to accomplish for five straight years. it's so hard to get to the playoffs as tough
as the missouri valley conference is. and then for our guys not only to get in the playoffs, but then just continue to improve and get better and better every game in the playoffs. each of the last five years, we're playing our best football late in the season, which is really hard to do when you're

job like i have here at north dakota state. loras college, i'm so appreciative of jim collins college, for giving me an opportunity to be at loras. and you have to wear every hat as a division iii head coach. so it just makes you prepare when you get

the gophers and kansas state. what excites you most this matchup with iowa next season?
