COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jarrod Uthoff scored 18 points and Aaron White added 17 to lead Iowa past No. 20 Ohio State 71-65 Tuesday in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

The Hawkeyes (10-4, 1-0) never trailed after the opening minute, leading by as many as 12 points in the first half and holding on when Ohio State (11-3, 0-1) applied pressure at the end.

Sam Thompson had 17 points, D'Angelo Russell scored 13 despite heavy foul trouble and Marc Loving added 10 for the Buckeyes, who had won eight games in a row in the series before the Hawkeyes won at Value City Arena last year 84-74. Three weeks later, the Buckeyes won in Iowa City 76-69.

Iowa holds a 75-72 edge in head-to-head meetings.
