Not a lot went right for Iowa in an 89-67 loss to Purdue, but there’s no denying the Hawkeyes got a lucky break when sophomore guard Christian Williams tried to connect with freshman forward Tyler Cook on an alley-oop.
It's okay, Tyler Cook.
We know you can throw down with the best of them, and we're glad to have you back. ? https://t.co/aGctwXQQnQ

The game was all Purdue outside of that. The Boilermakers never trailed in cruising to a seventh straight victory. Four different Purdue players scored in double-figures and Caleb Swanigan posted his fifth straight double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
On the Hawkeyes’ side, Peter Jok was high-scorer with 13 points, but made only 4 of 15 shots. Cook’s scoring wasn’t limited to a single lucky bounce as he scored 12 points.
