IOWA CITY, IA (KTIV) -- -
In basketball, some nights, the perimeter shots just aren't falling. The Hawkeyes made just 2 of 16 three-point tries on Tuesday night against South Dakota and had to find another way to win. They went inside and outscored the Coyotes 54-14 in the paint.
Iowa trailed by a point with seven minutes left in the first half and then closed the half on a 21-4 run. Freshman Adam Woodbury from Sioux City East had ten points, including his first dunk of the season. The 7'1" center made five of his six shots from the field, with six rebounds.
Woodbury also had just one foul in 16 minutes of work, which kept him on the floor.
"I feel like I can improve everywhere," said Woodbury. "Staying out of foul trouble is a big key the last couple of games I need to work on. I didn't get a couple of calls here and there and need to being smart with certain things I think will help me as well."
"Most of their struggles in games have been the result of foul trouble," said head coach Fran McCaffery. "In particular in Adam's case. We've got to teach them how to stay out of foul trouble and be able to be on the floor and then live with some mistakes as you go through this early part of the season. Hopefully by the time we get into Big Ten play they'll be playing like veterans."
The Hawkeyes, now 7-2, will host Iowa State on Friday at 7 o'clock on the Big Ten Network.
