IOWA CITY (AP) -

Peter Jok scored 20 of his 27 points in the first half and Iowa cruised to a 95-67 win over Texas Rio Grande Valley on Sunday.

Tyler Cook scored 15 points and Isaiah Moss had a career-high 14 for the Hawkeyes (3-1), who shot 51 percent from the field and scored 41 points off 26 Vaqueros turnovers.

Jok, Iowa's top scorer, left a few minutes into the second half after a collision with a defender at the rim. Jok stayed in to shoot his two free throws, but did not play after that. He went to the locker room for a couple minutes before returning to the bench.

Jok was 9-of-13 shooting, including 5-of-8 3-pointers, in 19 minutes.

Antonio Green scored 17 points to lead UTRGV (0-4), which out-rebounded Iowa 43-38.

The Hawkeyes went on a 26-7 run in the middle of the game to pull away from the Vaqueros.

Iowa's Brady Ellingson scored 11 points.

Iowa forward Dale Jones did not play after suffering a fractured wrist on Thursday against Seton Hall. Jones is expected to miss 8-9 weeks.
