Hawkeyes’ rally comes up short in NCAA loss
SOUTH BEND (AP) — Iowa’s long layoff wasn’t so much the problem Sunday. The Hawkeyes just couldn’t keep long-armed and talented California off the backboards.
Cal had a 41-29 rebounding advantage — 19-7 on the offensive glass — and the Golden Bears survived a late Hawkeyes’ rally for an 84-74 victory in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.
“California could write a textbook on how to rebound. They are exceptional at maintaining that persistence for the basketball,” Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said.
