This tournament has been far from perfect for the Iowa Hawkeyes, who expected to advance to the championship game. Instead, Iowa is playing UAB for seventh place.
Iowa shot nearly 51 percent in an 80-72 loss to South Dakota State on Tuesday. Isaiah Moss led the way again with 18 points, while three other Hawkeyes finished in double figures.
“Even though we have a young team, we have to play like a veteran team in close games late,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery told Mark Emmert of the Des Moines Register. “We didn’t do that yesterday and we didn’t do it today. We could have won either game.”
The Hawkeyes’ 15 turnovers turned into 25 South Dakota State points. Also, defense continues to plague the Hawkeyes. South Dakota State shot 10 of 20 from 3-point range. That’s what Moss thought was the difference.
“Just playing 40 minutes of straight defense, hard, intensity,” Moss told Emmert. “We can’t have too may mental breakdowns like we had today.”
It’s been a disappointing tournament for Iowa, but the players have learned about their deficiencies.
“These are the first two games we’ve played where we knew going in that we needed to play at our best level,” Iowa forward Cordell Pemsl told Emmert. “It’s just a reality check. We show spurts of great defense and we show spurts of, nobody knows what’s going on and why is this happening?”
UAB (3-2) went back-and-forth with Buffalo before losing in overtime. Dragons forward Chris Cokley scored 24 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. He hit 10 of 15 from the field.
