Jeff Stell

-Iowa drilled Iowa State 78-53 Saturday night at

Hilton Coliseum and the final stats show how the

Hawkeye domination.

-The Hawkeyes outrebounded the Cyclones 47-24 and had

a big 9-0 advantage in three-point shots made. Besides

not making a three-pointer, the Cyclones also missed

11 free throws.

-“We got beat in every category tonight,” Cyclone

coach Larry Eustacy said. It’s no big story, Iowa is

just a much better team. It was a lot of experience

over a lot of youth.”

-Reggie Evans was a magnum force for the Hawkeyes,

scoring 24 points and snaring 17 rebounds. Evans

collected 13 rebounds on the defensive end as the

Cyclones were limited to one shot on several


-“We haven’t gotten pounded on the boards like that in

a long time,” Eustachy said. “Reggie (Evans) is just a

great player.”

-The Cyclones shot just 34.7 percent from the field,

including the dismal 0-for-8 finish from three-point

range. Tyray Pearson led the Cyclones with 20 points

while Shane Power added 17 points and nine rebounds.

-The 25-point margin of defeat evens the largest for a

Cyclone team in Hilton Coliseum. The other 25-point

loss was a 105-80 defeat to Vanderbilt on Nov. 29, 1975.
