Iowa falls at Illinois 65-54

Posted:
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (KWWL) -

Iowa couldn't capitalize on the momentum from beating 2 straight top 25 teams.  The Hawkeyes dropped their 6th straight road contest 64-55 at Illinois.  It was Iowa's 11th consecutive loss at Assembly Hall.

Meyers Leonard came off the bench to score 22 for the Illini in the victory.  Hawkeye senior Matt Gatens kept up his hot streak as well, hitting 5 of 6 from 3 point range for 22 points, but it wasn't enough to give Iowa their third straight win.

Sunday's win snapped a 6 game losing streak for the Illini.
