CHICAGO — It’s one and done for Iowa in Chicago. Ohio State made the plays down the stretch and beat the Hawkeyes 73-69 Thursday afternoon at the Big Ten Tournament, as you heard on AM-1300 KGLO. It was another in a series of losses to teams near the bottom of the conference.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Buckeyes controlled the tempo and Iowa made only four of 17 shots from three point range.

There were 18 lead changes and the Hawkeyers fall to 19-13.

Filip Rebraca led the Hawkeyes with 20 points. Iowa was hoping for another lengthy run and instead will get added time off before the NCAA Tournament.

NCAA selections will be announced Sunday evening.
