Recap


Iowa raced to a 19-point halftime lead and never looked back as the Hawkeyes continued their torrid early season offensive prowess by rolling to a 88-55 win on Thursday over Northern Illinois in Iowa City, Iowa.

The Hawkeyes (3-0) got a career-best 16 points off the bench from freshman guard Josh Oglesby and 15 from senior Matt Gatens, while connecting on 13 of 21 from 3-point range in handing the winless Huskies their third straight defeat to start the season under first-year head coach Mark Montgomery.

Iowa, which shot 62 percent from the field in the first half en route to a 49-30 lead, was averaging 95.5 points in its first two games. Oglesby and Gatens, who moved into 25th place on Iowa's all-time scoring list, paced the first half onslaught with 11 points apiece.  Eric May chipped in 14 points for the Hawkeyes while Bryce Cartwright handed out a season-best nine assists.

The Hawkeyes’ bench outscored NIU 43-11 and held the Huskies to just 23 percent (7-31) in the second half.

Freshman Abdel Nader led NIU (0-3) with 18 points and Tim Toler added 10 points and nine rebounds.
