Hawkeyes’ depth smothers Gophers

IOWA CITY, Iowa – With Devyn Marble struggling and Aaron White in foul trouble, the once-forgotten Josh Oglesby kept Iowa afloat.

Once Marble and White got it going, the 14th-ranked Hawkeyes overwhelmed Minnesota.

White scored all of his 18 points in the second half, and Oglesby came off the bench to add a season-high 17 points, as Iowa blew past Minnesota 94-73 on Sunday.

Oglesby led yet another brilliant effort by Iowa's reserves, who scored 43 points.

"It's just a further example of the talent we have across the board," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. "When you're having 40 points off the bench, it presents all kinds of problems for them."

Marble had 15 of his 16 points after halftime for the surging Hawkeyes, who moved into third place in the Big Ten behind Michigan State and Michigan.

Iowa (15-3, 4-1 Big Ten) overcame a 10-point deficit with a 29-10 run and finished the game by outscoring the Gophers 61-30.

Andre Hollins had a game-high 20 points for Minnesota (14-5, 3-3). But Iowa held Hollins without a field goal in the second half in handing the Gophers their most lopsided loss of the season.

"They just decided to shut him down, obviously," Minnesota coach Richard Pitino said of Hollins. "Our offense wasn't the issue. It was absolutely our defense."
