EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Joe Wieskamp scored 21 points to lead Iowa’s balanced offense in an 88-58 win over Michigan State on Saturday. The Hawkeyes had three players score in double figures and Luka Garza wasn’t one of them. Garza had a season-low eight points on 3 of 11 shooting, but his teammates more than made up for the star senior being held well below his 20-point average. Jack Nunge matched a career high with 18 points and Connor McCaffery had 16 points. The staggering Spartans are in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1997.


AMES, Iowa (AP) — Jalen Wilson scored 22 points and pulled down 10 rebounds for his fourth straight double-double as Kansas broke away in the final nine minutes to defeat Iowa State 64-50. Iowa State led for all but the final two seconds of the first half when David McCormack hit a jumper to knot the score at 24-24. The Jayhawks scored the first six points of the second half and led the rest of the way. McCormack scored 13 points with eight rebounds, Christian Braun added 11 points, nine after halftime. Jalen Coleman-Lands led the Cyclones with 20 points, including three 3-pointers, and Rasir Bolton added 13 points.



DES MOINES — Drake stayed alive in the Missouri Valley title chase. The Bulldogs rallied from 10 down in the second half to force overtime in a 51-50 win, bouncing back from a 27 point drubbing on Saturday.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who felt it was a must win to keep Drake’s NCAA at-large hopes alive.

On a day the Bulldogs did not shoot it well they won because of effort on defense.



CEDAR FALLS — UNI bounced back from a Saturday loss to Valparaiso. The Panthers shot 53 percent in a 74-60 win in the McLeod Center.

That’s UNI coach Ben Jacobson who was pleased with way his team responded.

The Panthers improve to 5-10 in the Valley
