(S.D.)- Iowa Beats South Dakota 87-75 To Open NIT

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 03/16/2017 08:21 AM
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Freshmen Jordan Bohannon scored 19 points with 11 assists, fellow newcomer Tyler Cook scored 18 with eight rebounds and Iowa opened the NIT with an 87-75 win over South Dakota on Wednesday.
 
 Senior Peter Jok had 20 to lead the Hawkeyes (19-14), one of four top seeds in the 32-team event.
 
Iowa couldn't quite shake South Dakota, which excelled at crashing the offensive glass and getting to the free-throw line. But the Hawkeyes finally took a double-digit lead on Ahmad Wagner's layup with 8:31 left, and Wagner's layup a minute later made it 68-54.
 
Bohannon's 3 with just over a minute left put Iowa ahead 82-70.
 
Iowa, one of the last four teams left out of the NCAA Tournament, got 59 points from first-year-players - with Isaiah Moss adding 16.

 
     Matt Mooney had 23 points for the Coyotes (22-12), who earned an NIT bid after winning the Summit League regular-season crown.
