Hawkeye Basketball finishes European Tour unbeaten

Posted: Updated:

Tyler Cook and Luka Garza posted double-doubles to lead the University of Iowa men’s basketball team to an 88-49 triumph over the Vicenza All-Stars Monday evening. The win improved the Hawkeyes’ record to a perfect 4-0 on their European Tour.

 

Both Cook and Garza played 23 minutes each with Cook totaling 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Garza tallied 24 points and 14 boards. A total of 12 Hawkeyes scored in the contest.

 

Iowa had a rare off-day shooting the basketball from the perimeter, making only 4-of-21 (.190) from 3-point range, but found its rhythm down low, scoring 24 baskets (48 points) inside the paint.

 

Defensively, the Hawkeyes out-rebounded Vicenza by 24 (59-35), blocked seven shots, and collected a staggering 18 steals. Iowa held Vicenza to just 21 first-half points, including nine in the second period.

HAWKEYE PERFORMERS OF THE GAME
The dup of Luka Garza and Tyler Cook combined for 30 points on 18-of-23 (.783) shooting from the field, while also grabbing 24 total boards and rejecting four shots. Garza finished the four-game trip averaging 22.5 points and 10.3 rebounds, while Cook averaged 12.3 points and 5.5 boards.
