Lineups: Iowa at IL, 7 pm today

Iowa coach Fran Mc Caffery wants his Hawkeyes to play with more desire and pride in hopes of picking up their first Big Ten win of the season tonight at Illinois

ANSWER: Iowa's rally from 20 points down at IL for a 104-97 overtime victory Thursday night was the third-largest deficit the Hawkeyes have overcome in program history.

FYI: Illinois forward Michael Finke averaged 14.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in the Illini's pair of wins last season against Iowa.

Iowa needed just 2:08 to reel off the first 10 points of the second half and force IL to call a timeout to pick up the pieces.

Sophomore guard Jordan Bohannon paced the Hawkeyes (10-9, 1-5) with 29 points, one shy of his career-high.

Iowa shot 50 percent from the field for the game, making 32-of-64 field goals.

Cook and Garza both posted double-doubles and a total of five Hawkeyes reached double figures.

Iowa (10-9) and IL (10-8) clashed in Champaign on the evening of January 11 in a battle of winless teams in Big Ten play. 3-Point Goals-Iowa 7-24 (Bohannon 5-12, Baer 2-5, Garza 0-1, Dailey 0-1, Cook 0-1, Moss 0-4), IL 14-30 (Frazier 7-11, Jordan 4-8, Williams 1-2, Nichols 1-2, Alstork 1-2, Smith 0-2, Finke 0-3). Frazier led IL with a career-high 27 points, including seven 3-pointers, while Leron Black and Aaron Jordan added 18 points each. More impressive, though, was Illinois's three point shooting, which stood at an unreal 9/15 (60%) at half.

Freshman guard Trent Frazier scored a career-high 27 points and hit a game-tying three at the end of regulation, but the Fighting Illini fell in overtime to Iowa, 104-97. McCaffery said after the game.

It was Iowa's second-largest comeback in school history.

Radio: Brian Barnhart (play-by-play) and former Illini Deon Thomas (expert analysis) have the call on the Illini Sports Network on WHMS 97.5-FM, WDAN 1490-AM, WDNL 102.1-FM and WPXN 104.9-FM. The Hawkeyes trailed by 23 points (38-15) with 13 seconds remaining in the first half in an eventual 65-56 win over Gardner-Webb in 2012 and trailed by 22 points (61-39) with 16 minutes left at IL in 1987 in a 91-88 overtime triumph.

Iowa big man Garza essentially took over for Iowa in the final four minutes of regulation, scoring seven points to give Iowa the lead, which it held until Frazier's buzzer-beater sent the game into overtime. But less than three minutes into the second half, the Hawkeyes changed that tune with emphasis. In the second half, Garza was the X-factor.

Steele finished with a game leading 19 points and grabbed six rebounds before collecting her fifth foul in the overtime period. Garza finished with a double-double. "When Luka came in, he came in with energy and confidence".

The Hawkeyes had a decisive advantage at the free throw stripe, finishing with season-highs in makes (33) and attempts (40). But Iowa is a team Underwood remains wary of heading into today's game.

Harris took encouragement from the play of the SIUE reserves, who accounted for 31 points, or 18 more than Belmont's substitutes.

The Hawkeyes had 17 offensive rebounds, turning them into 18 second-chance points.

Both teams struggled to take care of the ball recording 63 combined turnovers in the game.
