 Two games, two blowouts. For the second straight contest, the Iowa Hawkeyes took control and never looked back as they rolled past Nebraska 74-46. The victory comes just days after an 81-47 win over Rutgers.

Aaron White led the way with a double-double, 16 points and 11 rebounds. Peter Jok added 14 points in the Iowa victory.
