Bohannon, Iowa rally from 20 down, beat IL in OT

Bohannon, Iowa rally from 20 down, beat IL in OT

And yet combined, IL and Iowa are 0-9 in the league.

FYI: Fighting the flu Saturday at Michigan, Black's seven-point scoring effort was the first time since November 17 he didn't hit double digits playing a full game for the Illini.

Frazier doesn't lack for confidence - in himself or in his teammates - even after two more Big Ten losses last week put IL at 0-4 in the conference. IL (10-7, 0-4) is seeking its first Big Ten victory and leads 54-41 at halftime.

Defensively, Iowa basketball yields 75.0 points against the opposing teams. Classmate Tyler Cook added 21 points and a game-high 13 rebounds, while freshman center Luka Garza contributed 19 points and 11 boards. They notched 38 points in the paint on a night when they shot just 7 of 24 from behind the three-point arc. Jordan Bohannon's dagger 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining stretched the Hawkeye lead to 99-90.

Points in the paint were controlled by IL, with 42 points, compared to Iowa's 38.

Iowa shot 50 percent from the field for the game, making 32-of-64 field goals. Iowa outrebounded the Illini 45-26, including 20-9 in the second half, and outscored IL 33-11 from the free throw line.

Sophomore guard Jordan Bohannon led the way with 29 points and five assists in 41 minutes. The two border rivals often have battled for position near the top of the Big Ten standings.

"We really go game-to-game", Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. "He was ready this time".

Cook and Garza both posted double-doubles and a total of five Hawkeyes reached double figures.

Sophomore Isaiah Moss and Baer finished with 12 and 10 points, respectively. We gave up 63 points in the second half and overtime.

Frazier, who led the Illini with 27 points, knocked down another 3 with 1:15 to go.

Garza said the Hawkeyes were determined not to lose, even after falling behind by as much as 20 points in the first half. McCaffery pointed out their activity on defense, as well, and that's backed up by the numbers, too. "We were down 20 in the first half, but we weren't down 20 at halftime".

Tonight marked the third time in school history that Iowa rallied from at least 20 points to win a game (23 vs. Gardner-Webb in 2012 and 22 at IL in 1987). Unlike Iowa, Fighting Illini games have a tendency to go under the projected point total (69.2 percent). He had 18 3-pointers in 17 games heading into Thursday's contest.

Iowa's 20-point comeback was the third-largest in school history, right behind a 22-point deficit against IL in 1987 and a 23-point comeback against Gardner-Webb in 2012. Taylor Williams hit a three-point field goal with a little over a minute to play tying the game and forcing overtime.

IL reeled off 13 straight points in a run in which Iowa missed seven straight shots and also turned the ball over five times and the Illini later added a 10-0 run to seemingly take control. In the second half, Garza was the X-factor. In 40 minutes, he added 27 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal and 7 threes with 3 turnovers.

-Finally, Iowa took advantage of his height.

"Our problem is that some of those where we are not scoring or drawing a foul, we are turning the ball over, " he said, noting that IL is averaging 14.8 turnovers per game. "When Luka came in, he came in with energy and confidence. That spurt was huge for us and him". Michigan's 0.373 free throw rate was their biggest advantage over IL, who had a rate of 0.214. Iowa made its first 17 free throws in the game; Bohannon and Garza had flawless nights, going 10-for-10 and 9-for-9, respectively.

After a horrendous start, the Hawkeyes buckled down with their zone defense, forced turnovers and gained 17 offensive rebounds. The only larger comeback was a rally from a 22-point margin in a 1987 game in Champaign. IL is also 1-7 ATS in their last eight Thursday games and the under is 23-6 in their last 29 overall.
