Iowa Falls on the Road at Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- There was no coming back for the University of Iowa men's basketball team Wednesday night at the RAC.
Rutgers built a double-digit lead in the first half and added to its advantage in the second half to hand the Hawkeyes an 80-64 defeat.  The Scarlet Knights had four players reach double figures in the game and finished with a 53.7 field goal percentage.
The Scarlet Knights built an early 11-4 lead before sophomore Jordan Bohannon fueled a 9-0 run by the way of three 3-pointers to give Iowa a 13-11 lead.  Rutgers followed with a 12-0 spurt to push its lead to double digits and the Scarlet Knights led by as many as 17 in the opening 20 minutes.
A game after making 33 and attempting 40 free throws in the win at Illinois, Iowa was held without a free throw attempt in the first half and scored only six first-half points in the paint. 
"In the first half, when they went on 12-0 run we tried to go a little too much 1-on-1," said Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery. "That's not who we are, we have to get the ball moving.
