hoiberg had 18 then... first half, bulls would take an early lead here as blake hamilton buries the jumper to go up 16-15. but the cyclones answer in a big way! hallice cooke kicks it out to georges niang who buries the triple. then it's cooke this time dialing it up from three. niang again knocks down the trifecta. this all happens within three minutes, here cooke gives it up to abdel nader straight cash homey! part of 15-0 run, hawks up 34-25 at the break... 2nd half, bulls trim it to one! before the clones go on another run. monte morris out to niang, good for three of his career high 31 to go along with 12 boards then off the inbounds matt thomas finds the bottom of the jar for three more! cyclones would pull away from there, morris with the steal and lay-in. then it's jameel mckay with the slam... he had a double double of 13 and 10. morris also finished with double double of 12 and 10 assists. isu moves to 7-0 on the year... hawkeyes also at home taking on the leathernecks of western illinois.
valley high. drops in the jumper for two. then it's jared uthoff backin up his man and hits the fadeaway... hawks up 53-32 at the break. 2nd half, more from uthoff he buries the three ball in the left corner. then it's mike gesell, look at that he went to jared! another triple! uthoff wasn't done. off the missed three first time no, second effort yes! 2 of his career high 27 points! iowa crusies in this one, 90-56! jordan/bam: anyone who watched or was at the big ten championship game saw it. iowa fans showed up in full force, even striping out a neutral site! the same is to be expected january 1st for the rose bowl! this video i shot shows no doubt lucas oil stadium turned into kinnick east on saturday. of the 67- thousand fans, i'd estimate a good 45- thousand were garbed in black and gold... i asked coach ferentz and some of the players if they
the crowd and if we could see turn the rose west... that, but i scanned the stadium a couple times last night. it was just really impressive, the environment, we felt like we were at home and i got a sense of that friday night just people that were out in town coming back to 'everywhere you went, people there.' i guess they showed up at the gameday set and really made a good showing there too. but again, i think that's the tradition of iowa, our fans are just fantastic, they're fantastic in kinnick and they travel with a lot of enthusiasm and i imagine there's going to be quite a few people out in california, i can guarantee you that, "ya we'll see, i don't know, that would be pretty cool if they can pull that off, i wouldn't be surprised at all. to have that kind of turnout at a big ten championship game and to have that kind of turnout at a game we years." travel pretty well so i'm expecting a lot of iowa fans to be there in pasadena and it'll be a fun time."
from friday the 102nd rose bowl game kicks off between iowa and pac 12 champ stanford. the cardinal's christian mccaffery just was named a hesiman trophy finalist this evening, so the hawks might have their hands full... things get underway at 4 pm new years day on espn. stanford is an early 6.5 point favorite. finally some more football news, iowa state qb grant rohach announced via twitter that he'll be continuing his playing career at buffalo. kind of ironic since the cyclones played the bulls tonight. rohach played in 9 games in
his career at iowa state, starting 5, including the final four of the 2013 season. he threw more almost 15- hundreds and 10 touchdowns. rohach, who will graduate later this month, is eligible to play immediately, due to graduate transer rules. jordan/3shot (wrap sports) stephanie: jack: we'll be right back... you're watching local five news at 10. stephanie:
