When Peter Jok was benched with two personal fouls in the first half of Sunday's game against Penn State, you knew that it wasn't the finale the senior guard had in mind. You just knew that Jok would come out and heat things up in the second half. Boy did he ever.

Jok scored 20 points in the second half as Iowa topped Penn State 90-79. Iowa finished at 10-8 in the Big Ten this season, but most would agree they need to do some winning at the Big Ten Tournament this week to truly secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament. But Sunday was about a senior's last game on his home court.


Iowa has a first-round bye in the Big Ten Tournament in Washington D.C. The Hawks are the #7 seed and play #10 seed Indiana at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 9th. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
