Iowa deals No. 5 Michigan its second loss

Luka Garza scored 19 points, Joe Wieskamp added 16 and host Iowa stunned fifth-ranked Michigan 74-59 on Friday night, handing the Wolverines their second loss of the season.

Ryan Kriener had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (17-5, 6-5 Big Ten), who snapped a two-game losing streak with their biggest win in years.

“I think what it says about this team specifically is, when you put it together from a game plan perspective and execute, we can be pretty good,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said.

Iowa used a 21-2 run to grab a 42-29 lead at the break — nearly matching the 49 points Ohio State put up against Michigan in a 16-point loss Tuesday.

The Wolverines (20-2, 9-2) cut their deficit to 54-49, but a 3-pointer by Garza and a three-point play by Wieskamp helped push Iowa’s lead back to 67-51 with 5:18 left.

“I can see why they’re 17-5 right now,” Michigan coach John Beilein said. “We got beat by a really good team. They (were) much better than us. Their bench was terrific.”

Ignas Brazdeikis and Jordan Poole each scored 16 points for Michigan, which allowed 70 or more points for just the second time this season.

“We couldn’t stop their big guys,” Beilein said. “We had young guys guarding them because of foul trouble.”

Wisconsin, which leads the Big Ten in hitting nearly 40 percent of its 3-pointers, heated up from outside in the second half to pull away. Davison finished with four 3s for the Badgers.
