One point win for Gophers over Hawkeyes at Big 10 women's tournament

The first game resulted in a five-point victory for Minnesota with a score of 77-72, while the second encounter ended with an Iowa win of 92-84.

The Hawkeyes (14-19) almost pulled off the upset, trailing MI 74-71 with 24 seconds to go, but forward Luke Garza missed a potential game-tying three.

Gustafson's mega performance came after a rather disappointing outing against Northwestern the day before (12 points, 9 rebounds), which helped feed her monster game.

"[Gustafson] was scoring really well on the same moves and I think we should have guarded her a little differently", Bell told reporters. "I've put in so much work the past three years at Iowa, but at the end of the day I've had fantastic support here". "Kathleen did a really good job of getting past her defender".

A 23-6 record, a share of third place in an improved Big Ten and an RPI that stood as the 16th best in the nation have all-but assured Iowa that it will return to the field for the NCAA tourney later this month after a two-year absence. Wolverines center Jon Teske then kept Iowa's upset bid alive, going 0-for-2 at the line, but the Hawkeyes again failed to score on the ensuing possession, and MI forward Duncan Robinson made both free throws and Corey Matthews added another to close out the game. The forward scored nine points during a 12-0 run and Alexis Sevillian added a 3-pointer to tie the game at 33. Gustafson also broke Iowa's program record for double-doubles in a career (53).

Four Gophers landed in double digits with Wagner leading the way with 27 points.

"This was a hard fought game by both teams".

Combined, they led Minnesota an 80-61 advantage in shots against Iowa team which shot 54 percent from the field. Iowa took its biggest lead 70-65 early in the period, but Pitts scored eight consecutive points to keep it close, including two threes. Gustafson's last points, a 3-point play, put the fifth-seeded Hawkeyes up 87-85 with 1:23 to play and broke the school record of 46 points set by Chrystal Smith on November 11, 2005.

Minnesota managed to avoid that problem when it needed to the most.

Gustafson scored 48 points - her Iowa teammates finished with 41. It's really incredible we were in the game, " Bluder said.

Freshman forward/center Luka Garza is one of the Big Ten's most promising young big men after averaging 12.1 points and 6.4 rebounds a game.

The loss snaps Iowa's eight-game winning streak that dated back to January 28.

"I think yesterday I didn't contribute as much as I normally do", she said. "We kind of relay for Megan crashing the boards for us, but other people have got to get involved". "We'll get ready to make some noise".
