Through the first eight minutes of Thursday night’s showdown between No. 5 Iowa and Maryland, it appeared as though the Terrapins would have a real shot to take down one of the nation’s top teams. But a 20-0 run midway through the first half changed all of that.

Maryland jumped out to an early 19-9 lead in College Park on Thursday, but that’s where all the positives essentially came to an end for the Terps. The Hawkeyes responded with a 20-0 run of their own to take a 29-19 lead and never looked back. Iowa’s lead only continued to grow, culminated in an 89-67 victory.

To close out the first half, Iowa outscored the Terrapins 35-7 in the final 12 minutes to take a 44-26 advantage into the locker room. By the time the first 20 minutes ended, Luka Garza was halfway to a double-double, scoring 17 points and grabbing 5 rebounds.

Once again, Garza led the way for the Hawkeyes, scoring 24 points, grabbing 7 rebounds and dishing out 7 assists. Jordan Bohannon buried 6 shots from 3-point range and finished the game with 18 points. Keegan Murray scored 12 points off the bench, shooting 6-of-9 from the floor and Patrick McCaffery added 10 off the bench.

Aaron Wiggins led the way for Maryland with 17 points and Donta Scott had 13 points and 8 rebounds.

Iowa improved to 10-2 on the season with the win, including a 4-1 mark in B1G play. The Terrapins are now 6-6 on the season and 1-5 in the conference.
