IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Freshman Luka Garza had 23 points and 13 rebounds to help Iowa snap a four-game skid with a 91-60 win over Southern on Sunday.
Connor McCaffery made the first appearance of his career Sunday afternoon for the Hawkeyes (5-6) after missing the first 10 games with a sprained ankle followed by illness. The freshman played 17 minutes and had five points, four assists, and three rebounds in his debut.
Few expected McCaffery to play so many minutes in his first game, including the player himself. Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery said the slower pace of the game allowed for his son to see more minutes.
