Iowa Hawkeyes Throttle Bryant 61-36.

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- After a taxing road trip, the University of Iowa men's basketball was happy to be back home, but even more thrilled to have its way with Bryant University, dominating the Bulldogs, 61-36, inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Friday night.

After traveling from the west coast to the east coast, playing West Virginia, Kansas State and Boston College, Iowa will virtually be home throughout the month of December and home has been very good to the Hawkeyes.

"It is always good to come home and be in front of your home fans," UI freshman Matt Gatens said. "It is nice to come home and win a game like this."

The Hawkeyes shot 21 of 43 (49 percent) from the field, including 11 of 15 (73 percent) in the second half. They shot 12 of 28 (43 percent) from three-point range. Bryant finished 11 of 37 (30 percent) from the floor and were 5 of 15 (33 percent) from deep.

The 36 points the Hawkeyes surrendered was the second-lowest point total under head coach Todd Lickliter.
