  • Illini Blows 20 Point Lead Loses in OT Cook scores 21 for Iowa

No longer winless in the Big Ten, Iowa needed a dominant second-half offensive effort and a healthy dose of free throws and rebounding to take down IL in overtime.

Despite a running 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to overtime, Iowa left State Farm Center with its first Big Ten win of the season, 104-97, over IL. Iowa outrebounded the Illini 45-26, including 20-9 in the second half, and outscored IL 33-11 from the free throw line.

IL needed a miracle to get the game to overtime and got one when Trent Frazier hit a body-twisting, off-balance 3 from in front of the Illini bench as time expired.

IL forced overtime on a heroic one-handed floater by freshman Trent Frazier as time expired, but the Hawkeyes won the extra period 14-7 for their first conference win of the year.

IOWA (10-9, 1-5) - Baer 2-7 4-6 10, Garza 5-8 9-9 19, Cook 9-14 3-5 21, Bohannon 7-16 10-10 29, Moss 4-11 4-4 12, Kriener 2-2 1-2 5, Nunge 0-0 0-0 0, Pemsl 2-2 0-0 4, Wagner 0-0 0-0 0, Ellingson 1-3 0-0 2, Dailey 0-1 2-4 2. The Hawkeyes knocked down shots at a 50 percent rate, and the Illini shot 48.6 percent. Luka Garza had his best game as a Hawkeye.

The Illini (10-8, 0-5 Big Ten) already had had four players foul out at that point. Black and sophomore forward Kipper Nichols scored four points apiece as the Illini surged to a 15-4 lead. Coming into the night, he was averaging just 9.6 points per game this season and had hit only 18 3-pointers for the entire year.

For Frazier, that was his seventh 3 of regulation, ending the first 40 minutes of the game with a career-high 27 points.

The Illini committed 31 personal fouls, and that's where their biggest hit came from - three members of the IL squad fouled out, so the team was limited come overtime.

Freshman guard Trent Frazier scored a career-high 27 points and hit a game-tying three at the end of regulation, but the Fighting Illini fell in overtime to Iowa, 104-97.

Gwadar is strategically located in the Arabian Sea and some 70 km away from Iran's Chabahar port being developed by India. He reaffirmed Islamabad's sacrifices and contributions in the war against terrorism.

Cook said he looked around at his teammates' eyes in the huddle prior to the overtime period and knew the game was in hand. Garza scored 17 of his 19 points in the 2 half and overtime.

The Hawkeyes made five more free throws down the stretch to finish with 104 points - Iowa's largest output against IL in the series that dates back to 1908.

Black's departure stunted Illinois' offense this time around while Iowa kept attacking. Illinois' Tony Wysinger had 34 points of 13-of-16 shooting. The Illini managed the first two in Saturday's loss at MI, but the fact that Mark Smith, Trent Frazier and Te'Jon Lucas combined for 14 of the Illini's 17 turnovers in the 10-point defeat certainly didn't help their cause.

"It didn't start in the second half, " McCaffery added. "First half was fun to watch, not so much the second".

The Washingon, D.C., native scored 17 of his 19 points in second half and overtime and he grabbed six more rebounds to finish off his third double-double of the season. He made 7 of 11 3-point attempts.

Losing might have stung less if the Illini hadn't played like a champion before it really mattered. He had played well up until that point, and he was looking for the opportunity.

Both teams struggled to take care of the ball recording 63 combined turnovers in the game. The flu had plagued the team since before the Minnesota game a week previous, and it stubbornly lingered and forced Mark Smith from the starting lineup.

Next for the Hawkeyes is a trip to Louis Brown Athletic Center to face Rutgers on January 17.

Some who follow Iowa have in recent weeks questioned whether or not the Hawkeyes had checked out; whether they were completely lost and weren't accepting Fran McCaffery's coaching.
