Cody Zeller overcame a sluggish start to score 22 points and Kevin ''Yogi'' Ferrell added a career-high 19 as No. 1 Indiana got past Iowa 73-60 on Saturday night.
The Hoosiers (25-4, 13-3 Big Ten) rebounded from this week's loss to Minnesota. But it was no typical night for Indiana's shooters, who were 38.9 percent from the field and didn't hit a 3-pointer until the final minute.
But Indiana played defense and took care of the ball.
Iowa (18-11, 7-9) committed 14 of its 19 turnovers in the first half and shot just 38.2 percent from the field. Roy Devyn Marble scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half to lead Iowa, while Aaron White had 14.
Indiana used an early 10-2 spurt and a 6-0 run to close the half to take a 26-14 halftime lead.
Iowa couldn't get closer than eight in the second half.
BEST OF MAXIM

For the fourth time this season, Indiana bounced back from a loss with a convincing win. With Saturday’s 73-60 win over Iowa, the Hoosiers notched their 25th win of the season and moved a step closer to clinching a Big Ten regular season championship.
Here’s a look at five takeaways from IU’s win over the Hawkeyes:
· Defense shines through: Both teams shot the ball poorly...
Indiana’s regular offensive weapons weren’t contributing. Jordan Hulls continued to struggle against Iowa (0-of-17 in two games this season), Christian Watford didn’t make a single field goal, and Victor Oladipo spent considerable time on the bench with foul trouble.
That left freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell, who rarely makes headlines for his scoring, to carry a heavier...
Thoughts on a 73-60 win against the Hawkeyes:
Forty minutes of basketball tonight inside Assembly Hall, and it was a foul fest — 52 combined between the Hawkeyes and Hoosiers. That’s 1.3 per minute. Blink and the whistle blew. Sneeze and there might have been another couple fouls called. Indiana got to the line a ridiculous 42 times, but converted on less than their average...
Freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell scored a career-high 19 points in Indiana’s 73-60 win over the Hawkeyes on Saturday night. His scoring was aided by a strong night at the line (8-of-10), but Ferrell also flashed some serious skill in penetrating off the perimeter for scores at the rim.

Barely beaten and probably a little baffled, the Hoosiers headed back to Bloomington after they got bested in the Barn, 73-77, splitting the season series with the Minnesota Golden Gophers for the fourth year in a row.
Indiana just couldn’t find their shot and didn’t compete on the glass, and it ended up being the Hoosiers’ third loss this year as a #1 ranked team.
Faced with a career full of obstacles, Elston still found ways to contribute

Derek Elston and the rest of his class stepped onto campus in 2009, not knowing what to expect. Elston had honored his commitment to the Hoosiers despite a coaching change, but this wasn’t what he signed up for.
Elston, a Tipton, Ind. native, committed to the Hoosiers in Sept. 2007 as...
Indiana clinched at least a piece of its first Big Ten championship in 11 years over the weekend, but it can have that title all to itself with a win in its home finale.
Ohio State, on the other hand, would be more than happy to settle for a share.
