IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Perhaps the only thing more surprising than Iowa's easy win over Indiana last week was how many youngsters the Hawkeyes used to pull off the upset.
Iowa pounded Indiana 78-66 on Sunday with a starting lineup featuring four underclassmen: freshmen Aaron White and Josh Oglesby and sophomores Zach McCabe and Devyn Marble. Even fellow sophomore Melsahn Basabe got into the act with 13 points, seven rebounds and five blocks off the bench.
Senior starter Matt Gatens, who scored 30 points against the Hoosiers, says having young guys play big minutes in such a big victory shows that the future is bright for the Hawkeyes
Iowa (14-13,, 6-8 Big Ten) hosts No. 16 Wisconsin (20-7, 9-5) on Thursday night in search of its fourth win over a ranked opponent this season.
