November 29, 2019 6:40am
The University of Iowa men's basketball team survived a second-half rally from No. 12 Texas Tech before posting a run-away, 72-61, victory Thursday night to advance to the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational.
The Red Raiders trailed 52-43 with 6:32 remaining before reeling off seven straight points, closing to 52-50 with 5:10 remaining. Junior Luka Garza followed with a three-point play and Jordan Bohannon's 3-pointer pushed the lead to 60-52 with 2:52 left.
Texas Tech kept coming, scoring seven of eight points to get to within 61-59 with 1:58 left. On Iowa's ensuing possession, Bohannon threw up a 3-pointer, but it failed to draw iron. Redshirt junior Cordell Pemsl secured the rebound and found Fredrick on the left wing.
The Hawkeyes put the game away at the free throw line, making all eight of their attempts in the closing minutes.
Bohannon paced Iowa with 20 points on four 3-pointers and an 8-for-8 effort from the free throw line. Garza notched his fourth double-double, finishing with 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting and 12 rebounds, sophomore Joe Wieskamp had 16 points -- 13 in the first half -- and six boards, and Fredrick added 10 points.
Iowa plays San Diego State Friday at 7pm.
