Red-hot Haw keyes sweep Michigan St. 59-54

Posted:

INDIANAPOLIS (KWWL)- The Iowa Hawkeyes are healthy again.

And they're playing the best basketball in the conference.

The Hawks notched their 11th win in 13 games, beating Michigan State 59-54 in the semifinals, and in doing so, moved a step closer to finding a spot in the NCAA tournament.

On a day where the Hawks didn't shoot as well as they're capable of, they relied on grit and a balanced scoring attack led by Kachine Alexander's 14 points.

Kamille Wahlin added 13 points, and Jaime Printy and Trisha Nesbitt each scored 10 for the third-seeded Hawkeyes (19-12), who advanced to play No. 10 Ohio State in Sunday's championship game.
