Unfortunately, the Hawkeyes didn’t shoot all that much better, so a late Tennessee run cut the halftime deficit to a mere three points. After

Tennessee (22-12) didn’t lead until Antonio Barton’s 3-pointer put the Vols up 59-57 with 3:05 left regulation.

Stokes’ three-point play was the key moment in his 18-point, 13-rebound performance. Iowa (21-13) managed only
