Theairra Taylor scored 22 points, Bethany Doolittle added 21 and Iowa blew out Marist 87-65 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Samantha Logic had 11 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds for the sixth-seeded Hawkeyes (27-8), who will face third-seeded Louisville on Tuesday for a trip to the Sweet Sixteen.
