Hawks pull the upset at #3 Ohio State

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (KWWL) -

Three times this season, the Iowa Hawkeyes had been close to picking up a signature win, but were unable to finish.  On Sunday, they sealed the deal hitting shots down the stretch to defeat #3 Ohio State 84-74 in Columbus.

Roy Devyn Marble led the way with 22 points in the win.  Melsahn Besabe added a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.  That included an acrobatic tip-in in the final minutes to help put the game away.

The #20 Hawkeyes appeared to be headed for another defeat against a ranked opponent, trailing Ohio State (15-2, 2-2 Big Ten) by as much as 9 in the second half.  Iowa (14-3, 3-1 Big Ten), however, outscored the Buckeyes 29-14 over the final 9 minutes to pick up their first win over a top 5 team since 2001.

    An offense missing Akrum Wadley and Matt Vandeberg struggled most of the night --

    And junior Dback Jake Gervase stole most of the show picking off Tyler Wiegers -- a play that came after multiple 3 and outs by the offense --
