Hawk hoopsters open with a 76-53 win over Marian

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Hawkeyes men tipped off the 2009 season with  a 76-53 exhibition win over Marian University.

Iowa hit 14 treys in the game, and jumped out to a 10-point lead midway through the first half behind Matt Gatens' strong shooting. He scored 12 of his 14 points in the opening half. However, Marian managed to hang with Iowa and halved the deficit, going into the break trailing 34-29.

Sophomore Anthony Tucker came off the bench to lead all scorers with 21 points, despite injuring his back in practice earlier in the fall. He hit five three-pointers and headed a 37-point contribution from the Iowa bench.
