(Neb.)- Bohannon, No. 25 Iowa Beat No. 24 Nebraska 93-84
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Jordan Bohannon scored a season-high 25 points, Tyler Cook had 16 and 25th-ranked Iowa beat No. 24 Nebraska 93-84 on Sunday, snapping a three-game losing streak to open Big Ten play.
Ryan Kriener added 14 points in his first career start for the Hawkeyes (12-3, 1-3). They shot 29 of 32 from the free throw line in holding off the Huskers (11-4, 1-3).
Nebraska, which shot 37.8 percent on 3s entering play, was a dismal 4 of 23 beyond the arc.
Bohannon, on the other hand, kept hitting 3s that kept the Huskers at bay.
Bohannon's banked 3, his first basket of the game, gave Iowa a 44-40 lead at halftime. Bohannon drilled another 3 to help slow Nebraska's momentum and push Iowa's edge back up to 72-63 - and he did the same after the Huskers got within 72-68.
Bohannon's final 3, with 2:03 left, gave Iowa an 83-75 lead.
Isaac Copeland had 24 points to lead Nebraska. James Palmer Jr. scored 20 points, but Iowa held the Big Ten's second-leading scorer without a point for the opening 18 minutes.
