It wasn’t great for the Hawkeyes down the stretch.
Michigan State took down Iowa 78-70 on Tuesday. The Spartans (19-9) moved to 11-6 in the Big Ten, inching out of the 10-6 pack. Meanwhile, the Hawkeyes (19-9) moved to 10-7.
No, this wasn’t a bad loss by any means. But this might be one of the few “what-if” games on the Hawkeyes’ schedule. It seemed as though Iowa had control for most of the game until midway through the season half.
But on a positive note, Luka Garza scored 20 points. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, that gives him nine straight 20-point games against top-25 teams, which is the longest streak in the past 15 years.
