IOWA CITY (AP) -

Brady Ellingson scored 21 of his career-high 23 points in the first half, Cordell Pemsl added 18 points and nine rebounds and Iowa breezed to a 116-84 win over Savannah State on Sunday.

The Hawkeyes (2-0) made a school-record 18 3-pointers and led by at least 20 points the entire second half. Iowa's 116 points are the most in Fran McCaffery's six seasons as coach and tied for the seventh most in program history.

Troyce Manassa had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Savannah State (0-2), which committed 20 turnovers.

Tyler Cook scored 14 points and Peter Jok had 13 for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa's bench scored 76 points -- led by Ellingson, who was used sparingly last season. Ellingson hit 7 of 9 shots, including 4 of 6 3-pointers.

Iowa's 43 3-point attempts were also a school record.

The Hawkeyes have won 39 of their last 40 non-conference home games
