No. 21 Iowa races away from North Dakota 88-62
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Melissa Dixon sparked a key run before halftime and Samantha Logic heated up in the second half as No. 21 Iowa rallied from as many as nine down to roar past North Dakota 88-62 on Saturday.
Logic, the reigning Big Ten player of the week after a triple-double against Drake, had six points at halftime. She finished with a game-high 21 with eight assists. Dixon scored 10 of her 13 points as the Hawkeyes (12-2) closed the first half with a crushing 25-4 run that included five of their six first-half 3-pointers, two from Dixon. Iowa was 9-for-25 from 3-point range.
The Bison (6-4) had led through much of the opening half, until Iowa started dropping 3-pointers. North Dakota was led by Madi Buck's 19 points with Mia Loyd adding 13 and Emily Evers 10.
North Dakota committed 21 turnovers, 12 on Iowa steals and shot just 39.7 percent (23-58).
