After a sluggish first half, the University of Iowa women’s basketball team rebounded to record a dominant, 91-47, victory over Asd Pallacanestro Muggia (APM). It is the second straight #Italian Tour victory for the Hawkeyes.

Improved defense and taking high percentage shots keyed the win for Iowa in the second half. After scoring 36 points in the first half, the Hawkeyes netted 55 in the final 20 minutes of play.

A big contributor in the inside for the Hawkeyes was freshman Megan Gustafson, who logged 13 points and five rebounds off the bench.

Junior Ally Disterhoft recorded the team’s first double-double of the trip, with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Also reaching double figures in scoring were sophomore Whitney Jennings (16) and junior Alexa Kastanek. For the second game of the Italian Tour, all 12 available Hawkeyes logged minutes.

Iowa is back on the hardwood for the second time in two days on Wednesday, Aug. 18 at 12 p.m. (CT) against TK Hannover, a German Club. TK Hannover is the most talented team the Hawkeyes will face on it’s #ItalianTour, and they are ready for the challenge.
