The Hawks arrived in London for their European basketball tour this week. Tuesday, Iowa played their first game in front of no one.
The Hawkeyes blow out the overmatched London Lions, 102-58 in a closed gym.
West Des Moines Valley alum Peter Jok scored 22 points for Iowa.
“Jarrod and Peter were terrific,” said head coach Fran McCaffery. “I wanted to get those two a lot of minutes in this game and let them play through any mistakes they may have made.”
Both teams rested key players before Wednesday’s game which is expected to be played in front of a packed house.
