Iowa wins final tuneup before Big Ten

IOWA CITY — Josh Oglesby scored 13 points in his season debut and No. 25 Iowa rolled to an 85-61 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff in college men’s basketball Sunday.

Oglesby missed the first 12 games of the season with a broken foot. He made his first four 3-pointers during a 6-minute stretch in the first half— drawing a loud ovation from the fans in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

“It felt really good, especially just making my first shot so I could get into the groove of things,” Oglesby said. “This team’s so unselfish and they found me, and I knocked down some shots.”

The Hawkeyes (11-2) opened their final non-conference game with a 39-5 run. Jarrod Uthoff scored 16 points and Adam Woodbury added 10.

Tevin Hammond scored 19 points for Pine Bluff (2-9), which lost its ninth straight.

Iowa committed a season-worst 27 turnovers but dominated the rebounding 42-27.

The Hawkeyes shot 62 percent from the field overall, compared with 33 percent for Pine Bluff.

Oglesby could become a much-needed outside shooting threat for the Hawkeyes, who rank near the bottom of the Big Ten in 3-pointers. The junior struggled last season, making only 26.9 percent of his 3-point attempts after shooting an impressive 37.2 percent as a freshman.

It’s unclear how Oglesby will fit into Iowa’s already deep rotation. Ten Hawkeyes average at least 14 minutes a game. McCaffery now has five guards he’s comfortable with as Iowa opens Big Ten play on Dec. 31 against Nebraska.

“I wasn’t surprised,” McCaffery said. “I was honest with you guys. I told you that he looked really good, and he looks like he’s in pretty good shape.”

The Hawkeyes shot 75 percent from the field in taking a 52-15 halftime lead.

On one play late in the half, Woodbury fumbled his dribble on a fast break on what looked like a sure turnover. But the 7-foot-1 center recovered and wrapped a pass around his back to Aaron White for a dunk and foul.
