Head Coach: Lute Olson


Bobby Hansen scored his only points of the night, four straight free throws in the last 10 seconds, to seal a thrilling victory over Indiana. It was Hawks' first win in the 10-year existence of Assembly Hall.

Kevin Boyle led the Hawks with 14 points, making 6 of 7 shots from the field. Kenny Arnold, Vince Brookins and Steve Krafcisin each scored 10 points. Iowa shot 46 percent for the game, after a strong 64% shooting in the 2nd half.

Isaiah Thomas, Indiana's usual offensive leader, only scored six points and committed four turnovers. He also intentionally fouled Hansen in the last seconds, setting up the two free throws, and fouling out of the game.

Lute Olson I asked the players at halftime, 'Are we a good basketball team or not?' I said, 'Indiana should be challenged to play us. We shouldn't be tense.'
