Jordan Bohannon led six Hawkeyes in double figures with 20 points and Iowa rolled past Minnesota 94-80 on Tuesday night, its second straight home win.

Tyler Cook scored 17 points with 10 rebounds and Isaiah Moss had 16 for the Hawkeyes (12-12, 3-8 Big Ten), who've split their last six league games after starting 0-5 in the conference.

Iowa opened the game on an 11-1 run before it resorted to its typical shoddy defense, allowing Minnesota (14-10, 3-8) to jump back out front late in the first half. But Iowa rallied with a 13-4 run to open up a 50-37 lead.

The Gophers tried to keep pace, but the Hawkeyes caught fire from beyond 3-point range -- at one point hitting five out of six in the second half to go up 70-58.
