The Columbus Dispatch - - Sports - From wire re­ports

Jor­dan Bo­han­non hit a three-pointer with three-tenths of a se­cond re­main­ing and No. 20 Iowa ral­lied from a 13-point deficit and beat North­west­ern 80-79 on Sun­day night in Iowa City, Iowa.

Bo­han­non scored his first points with 5:28 to go on a jumper and fin­ished with 15 points with 3-of-4 shoot­ing from three-point range, in­clud­ing the win­ner for Iowa (19-5, 8-5, Big Ten).

“It’s one of those things where if it ended the way that it did, you know (Bo­han­non) is go­ing to make the shot,” Iowa coach Fran Mccaf­fery said. “He’s fear­less. That’s why he’s got to be on the floor.”

Fresh­man Joe Wieskamp scored 21 points, in­clud­ing a three-pointer that was part of the Hawkeyes’ come­back with less than six min­utes re­main­ing. Tyler Cook had 19 points and 11 re­bounds, and Isa­iah Moss scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shoot­ing.

The Hawkeyes strug­gled through most of the game against the Wild­cats, get­ting dom­i­nated in re­bound­ing (37-26) and al­low­ing North­west­ern to shoot bet­ter than 50 per­cent from the field. NO. 12 HOUS­TON 65, NO. 25 CINCIN­NATI 58: Dejon Jar­reau scored
