Anytime you can open the season with a road win, it’s a good start all around.
The Hawkeye men’s basketball team went to Columbus last week and held off the Ohio State Buckeyes, 71-65.
The Hawks played solid defense, won the rebound battle 37-29, made shots down the stretch and got good play from the bench.
This is the second game in a row that Peter Jok started.
Peter came out strong, hitting a couple of free throws, a 3-pointer and a jump shot to help the Hawkeyes build a 19-10 lead with six minutes gone in the game.
