Iowa’s brief bid at an undefeated season is officially over.

The No. 3 Hawkeyes (6-1) fell 99-88 to No. 1 Gonzaga on Saturday afternoon. Luka Garza scored 30 points on 13-of-18 shooting, but it wasn’t enough to keep the game close.

The Bulldogs kept Iowa at arms length — or longer — for almost the entire game. The Hawkeyes led 14-12 early in the first half, but Gonzaga took the lead shortly afterwards and never looked back.
