Posted: Updated:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -

Melsahn Basabe scored 16 points and No. 16 Iowa pulled away from Penn State 82-70 on Saturday.

Roy Devyn Marble added 15, Aaron White 14 and Mike Gesell 13 as the Hawkeyes (19-6, 8-4) won their fourth Big Ten road game of the season. Iowa's three-game road winning streak in the Big Ten is its longest since 1998.

Penn State (13-13, 4-9) was led by D.J. Newbill, who scored 22 points, but Tim Frazier was held to 11.

The game was tied four times in the second half before Iowa stretched it out with a 14-4 run.

Marble, the team's leading scorer at 16.5 points per game coming in, pumped in seven of those and Mike Gesell converted on a 3-pointer from the corner to help the Hawks pull away.
