FYI: Fighting the flu Saturday at Michigan, Black's seven-point scoring effort was the first time since November 17 he didn't hit double digits playing a full game for the Illini.

Midway through the first half, it looked like it was going to be a long night for the Iowa men's basketball team.

It was Iowa's second-largest comeback win in school history. Michigan's 0.373 free throw rate was their biggest advantage over IL, who had a rate of 0.214. Frazier led IL with a career-high 27 points, including seven 3-pointers, while Leron Black and Aaron Jordan added 18 points each. Frazier led IL with 27 points.

Tyler Cook registered his second double-double of the season (21 points, 13 rebounds).

Bohannon led all scorers with 29 points, making 7-of-16 field goals, including five 3-pointers, to go along with a 10-for-10 night from the free throw stripe. Bohannon went 10-10 at the free throw line, as the Hawks hit for 33 of 40 from the line.

The loss drops Illinois' season record to 10-8.

Halftime-Illinois 54-41. End Of Regulation-Tied at 90. "We scored the first 10 points of second half, so now it's a two possession game so it's a completely different game with 17 minutes to go".

IL made nine 3-pointers and shot 54.1 percent in the first half to build a double-digit lead.

"I honestly don't know", he said, shaking his head. "They don't beat themselves and are very underrated defensively". On the season, Iowa has defeated opponents by an average of 5.7 points.

"It was a manageable number at halftime, that was important", said McCaffery. He had played well up until that point, and he was looking for the opportunity. In the second half, the Hawkeyes collectively realized there was no reason to lose to Gardner-Webb.
