It was a game the reeling Hawkeyes had to have.
Coach Fran McCaffery didn't need his Iowa team to outwork Penn State. Matching the Nittany Lions toughness was good enough.
Penn State's 13 victories this year have been the result of balanced scoring. The Nittany Lions' 13th loss resulted from just the opposite.
Iowa couldn't hit a 3 or get the defensive stops it needed, and stars Devyn Marble and Aaron White were outplayed by Ohio State's Aaron Craft.
It was easy to forget about Ohio State after a string of losses, including one at home to Iowa, sent the Buckeyes tumbling out of the Top 25.
Illinois put together one impressive comeback on Saturday night.
It was quite a recovery by No. 15 Iowa. Even coach Fran McCaffery was impressed.

"I don't know exactly how it affected us," Gesell said. "I trust in everything in Fran. I know he had a reason for what he did."
Iowa's Mike Gesell, who finished with nine points and seven assists, said he had no problem with McCaffery drawing the technicals, adding he has faith his coach confronted the referees for a reason.
