Jarrod Uthoff scored 14 points  to lead four Hawkeyes in double figures and Iowa crushed Rutgers, 81-47, on Thursday night at Carver Hawkeye Arena.
  The win snaps a two-game losing streak for Iowa (16-10, 7-6 Big Ten), and moves them into a tie for seventh place in the Big Ten with Illinois. 

  Iowa coach Fran McCaffery and his team have a favorable schedule down the stretch too, as just two of their final five opponents have a winning conference record.

The Scarlet Knights (10-17, 2-12) never really competed in what became their 10th-straight loss, a streak that started immediately after they, somehow, beat No. 4 Wisconsin, 67-62, at home in Piscataway.

Uthoff's 14, on 5-of-9 shooting, led all scorers. Aaron White added another 13 points with eight boards. White moved ahead of Ronnie Lester on Iowa's All-Time scoring list.
