PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Aaron White scored 17 points, Zach McCabe added 14 and No. 23 Iowa rolled into the championship game of the Battle 4 Atlantis, easily beating Texas-El Paso 89-53 on Friday night.

Peter Jok scored 14 and Melsahn Basabe finished with 10 for the Hawkeyes (7-0), who have already won five times this season by at least 31 points. Iowa will meet either Kansas or Villanova for the tournament title on Saturday.

After needing overtime to beat Xavier in the quarterfinals, Iowa took care of this one early. A 13-0 run in the opening minutes put the Hawkeyes in control, and Iowa's first 20-point lead came a mere 14 minutes into the contest.

Julian Washburn scored 13 for UTEP (4-3), which will play in the third-place game Saturday. No other Miner finished with more than seven.
