IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Fran McCaffery promised offense, and his team delivered in their first exhibition contest pounding visiting Illinois-Springfield 111-66 on Sunday afternoon.

Former Dubuque Wahlert standout Eric May led the way for Iowa with 21 points in the contest.  True freshman Melsahn Besabe was the biggest surprise as his strong play contributed 19 points in the dominant Hawkeye victory.
