IOWA CITY (AP) -

Jarrod Uthhoff scored 13 of his 22 points in the first half and ninth-ranked Iowa toppled No. 22 Purdue 83-71 Sunday for its ninth straight win.

Adam Woodbury added 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (16-3, 7-0 Big Ten), who've beaten four ranked teams since late December ahead of Thursday's meeting at No. 7 Maryland.

Iowa broke open a tight game with a 23-6 run to start the second half, getting baskets from seven different players during that stretch.

Vince Edwards had 19 points and P.J. Thompson had 16 for Purdue (17-4, 5-3), which split its last six games after a 14-1 start.
