Gonzaga tops Hawks 87-68, season ends in round of 32

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (KWWL) -

 Iowa fell behind early and never recovered as the 7th seeded Hawkeyes fell to 2 seed Gonzaga 87-68. The loss came 2 days after the Hawks picked up their first NCAA tournament victory in 14 years.

Jarrod Uthoff led the Iowa attack with 20 points in the game. Aaron White added 19 in his final contest wearing the black and gold.

Iowa's defense struggled all game long as the Bulldogs shot better than 60% from the floor. That included hitting 10 of 16 3-point attempts.

Gonzaga never trailed in the game.. The Bulldogs took control with a 16-4 run in the first half to lead 34-19. Iowa, meanwhile, never managed to trim that lead below double-digits in the second half.

Gonzaga moves on to face UCLA in the sweet 16. Iowa finishes the season at 23-11.
