An overtime loss to Michigan State Thursday night, coupled with this loss destroyed everything the Hawks had worked for all season. What could have been the first outright Big Ten title in more than a decade is now second place. The game was tied several times, but the Buckeyes refused to fall behind. Ohio State blocked 13 shots, with Herb Williams accounting for 8 of them.

Iowa shot 36 percent from the field in the game, making only 31 percent in the second half.

Center Steve Krafcisin spent Saturday in the UI Hospitals, nursing a swelled left arm. Bobby Hansen will have his foot x-rayed today for broken bones.

Lute Olson I make it clear to my players that when they come into the locker room after a game, they look in the mirror and think whether or not they gave out everything they could have. If they feel they gave out all their effort, then they can sit down. There are some guys right now that can't do that. We got great efforts from some and only 50 or 60 percent from others.
