IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Kris Murray had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and Iowa rallied from a 21-point, first-half deficit to beat No. 15 Indiana 91-89 on Thursday night, as you heard on AM-1300 KGLO. The Hawkeyes (9-6, 1-3 Big Ten) snapped a three-game losing streak with a second-half comeback capped by Murray’s plays on both ends of the court in the final seconds. Iowa was leading 87-86 when Murray blocked Jalen Hood-Schifino’s layup attempt with 10 seconds to play. Murray, who had 21 points in the second half, made two free throws after being fouled on the rebound, and dribbled out the clock after Indiana’s Trey Galloway intentionally missed the second of two free throws with three seconds left.



IOWA CITY — The 16th-ranked Iowa Hawkeye women have another tough road test in Big Ten play Saturday afternoon at 14th-ranked Michigan. The Wolverines lost standout center Naz Hillmon from last year but have raced out to a 13-2 record.

That’s Iowa coach Lisa Bluder who says a number of players have stepped up for Michigan.

Bluder says there are no easy road games in the Big Ten.

Both teams are 3-1 in league play. The Hawkeyes are 11-4 overall.




DES MOINES — The Drake women are at home tonight against Missouri Valley newcomer Belmont. The Bulldogs opened conference play by splitting a pair of road games at Illinois State and Bradley. Drake coach Allison Pohlman.

Drake announced this week that senior guard and Mason City native Megan Meyer will be lost for the season with an ACL injury. That puts more pressure on top scorers Maggie Bair and Grace Berg.

After tonight, the Bulldogs will host another Valley newcomer in Murray State on Sunday.

Drake is 6-4 overall and 1-1 in the Valley.
