IOWA CITY (KWWL

The Hawkeyes got 20 points and a career high 8 assists from Matt Gatens in an 82-69 victory over South Carolina State at Carver Hawkeye Arena Monday night.

Iowa, playing without suspended starting guard, Anthony Tucker, also got big games from Eric May and Jarryd Cole, as Iowa improved its season record to 5-7.

Jarryd Cole fired for 19, while Eric May scored a career high 18 points as Iowa pulled away in the first meeting ever between the two schools.

Anthony Tucker has been averaging 11 points a game, but has been suspended indefinitely for a second alcohol-related offense. Monday night, the Hawks didn't need Tucker, and got used good ball movement throughout the game in his absence.
