Bohannon for 3

IOWA CITY – Iowa guard Jordan Bohannon heated up just before halftime and poured it on in the second stanza of Iowa’s conference victory over Nebraska Sunday in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Bohannon, Junior, was scoreless until the halftime buzzer, as he hit a long 3-pointer on the run to give Iowa a 44-40 lead at the break. He scored 22 points in the second half. All five starters scored in double figures for Iowa: Bohannon (25) Cook (16), Kriener (14), Moss (12), and Wieskamp (10). “It was a big win, our first Big Ten win feels good. We can enjoy it but we have to get ready for Northwestern,” Bohannon noted.

Junior Ryan Kriener earned his first career start today, netting a season-best 14 points, one point shy of a career best. “I like to stay aggressive. Coach tells me I am a better player when I’m aggressive and that’s what I tried to do,” Kriener said after the game.

Iowa won its second game against a nationally-ranked opponent (No. 13 Oregon).

Iowa improved to 9-1 in homes games this season.

Iowa scored 90+ points for the sixth time this season.

Today’s win moved Fran McCaffery into a tie with Rollie Williams for fourth in Big Ten wins as Iowa head coach with 69.

Iowa returns to action on Wednesday at Northwestern (10-5, 1-3). Tipoff is slated for 8:07 p.m. (CT) at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
