In its final pre-conference tune-up, Aaron White led Iowa with 23 points. Peter Jok added 12, with point-guard Mike Gesell chipping in 12 and Jarrod Uthoff tossing in 10.
Uthoff posted his third career double-double (10 points, 12 boards). His 12 rebounds are a career-high.
Aaron White moved ahead of Jeff Horner on Iowa’s all-time scoring list. He ranks No. 14 with 1,507 points. He also surpassed 1,500 career points (1,507) and 500 career free throws (504) while posting a career-high 5 steals.
Iowa was 26 for 28 from the free throw line.
“I feel good (about my team),” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said, heading into Big Ten play. His team gets a coupe of days off before returning for practice on December 26.
“I feel good about where we are health-wise. I think we’ll get Clemmons healthy (two sprained ankles). He’ll be healthy. We’re getting a lot of productivity from a lot of people. Our defense has been good. It’s got to be better in the second half against good teams. Every team we play from here on is really good. So we got to address that.”
