BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Iowa overcame a shaky start in its first game without injured scoring leader Jaime Printy on Sunday and rolled to an 83-64 win at Indiana.

The Hawkeyes shot 35 percent and led 35-31 at halftime against the Hoosiers, who are winless in the Big Ten.

With a 22-point outing by Kamille Wahlin leading four starters in double figures, Iowa buried 21-of-30 shots in the second half to pull away to a win three days after Printy suffered a torn ACL that will end the junior’s season.

“It was tough getting ready for this game without Jaime,” Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said. “It was emotionally draining the last two days, not having her on the court or even around. It was mentally taxing for our players.”

Bluder suspects that had something to do with the slow start for the Hawkeyes (14-10, 6-5 Big Ten), who slowed the pace in the second half.

“We got into a track meet in the first half and while I’m all for pushing the tempo when we have numbers, we weren’t doing that,” Bluder said. “We just needed to settle down, make them play defense for longer periods and let it come to us.”
