• Iowa has gone into overtime in each of its last two games, following a win over Michigan last Sunday with a double-overtime loss at Nebraska on Thursday night. Peter Jok scored 34 points in that game with Isaiah Moss adding 17 and Tyler Cook 14. Nicholas Baer collected 11 rebounds and matched a career high with six blocked shots.
• Rutgers, under first-year coach Steve Pikiell, is off to an 0-3 start in the Big Ten and is now 3-36 in league play since joining the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights have lost to Wisconsin (72-52), Penn State (60-47) and Michigan State (93-65). Pikiell comes to Rutgers from Stony Brook, where he won 192 games in 11 years.
• Sophomore guard Corey Sanders, who led Rutgers in scoring a year ago, is the only player who saw much action for last year’s team who will start today. The Scarlet Knights have gotten a boost from transfers Nigel Johnson (Kansas State) and C.J. Gettys (UNC Wilmington) and Deshawn Freeman, a junior college transfer who missed most of last season with an injury.
