Payback

Iowa’s 86-84 loss to Indiana in the first Big Ten game of the season was still on the Hawkeye women’s minds Saturday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Ally Disterhoft hit a 3-pointer with less than a minute gone in the game, the Hawkeyes never trailed and beat the Hoosiers, 84-75.
Balanced scoring, Bethany Doolittle blocking seven shots, Samantha Logic handing out 11 assists and Iowa has its 16th win.

Upset Saturday

There were five upsets, according to wrestling rankings, Saturday at Carver.
Iowa had three, Minnesota two, but the Gopher pin at 125 was the difference and Minnesota took down the Hawkeyes, 19-15.
I was really surprised when Thomas Gilman (125) was taken to his back twice by unranked Sam Brancale.
The second time resulted in a pin and the Gophers led, 6-0.
Tony Ramos (133) got a 6-2 decision and 11th-ranked Josh Dziewa upset fifth-ranked Chris Dardanes 1-0 to tie the meet up 6-6.
Brody Grothus (149) lost, but the biggest Iowa loss came at 157.

Shelby Gunnells put Solon on the board with a short jumper from outside the lane with less than 30 seconds to go in the first eight minutes, and Nichole Oberthien followed it up with a fast break reverse layup as the quarter ended.
