"I've put in so much work the past three years at Iowa, but at the end of the day I've had wonderful support here".

"The basket had to look like an ocean to her, " Golden Gophers coach Marlene Stallings said.

"She was covered pretty heavily and Minnesota just had a good defensive stop, " said Meyer, the only other Hawkeye to finish in double figures with a 14-point performance.

Cook, a 6-9, 255-pound forward, isn't considered a lottery pick, but it's possible he was alluding to entering the 2018 NBA Draft.

"We came off a great first quarter, and we might have relaxed a little too much", said Gustafson, whose previous lowest scoring effort of the season was a 15-point opening-weekend game against Western Kentucky. Iowa took its biggest lead 70-65 early in the period, but Pitts scored eight consecutive points to keep it close, including two threes. The 19 field goals are also a Big Ten Tournament, school, and Iowa Big Ten Tournament records.

Ollinger stole the inbounds pass and after a timeout, Doyle moved the ball down court quickly but the Hawkeyes were unable to the ball in Gustafson and Ollinger missed as time expired.

"We're feeling real good right now".

Iowa was 33 of 61 from the field but Minnesota put up 19 more shots because of fewer turnovers (7 to 19) and more offensive rebounds (13 to 6).

The Hawkeyes fell behind 8-0 and trailed by as many as 12. Carlie Wagner (27 points) and Kenisha Bell (26) paced Minnesota (22-7). With No. 13 Ohio State first in the Big Ten, the Gophers anticipate Saturdays matchup to be tough.

Meanwhile, the race for the gold medal came down to two teams a cut above the rest. Their score of 123.35 points was exactly what they needed to make a case for gold.

The Hawkeyes won a 70-61 game at Northwestern on February 11 in the only regular-season meeting between the teams. They gave it away 19 times to only seven for Minnesota.

Minnesota managed to avoid that problem when it needed to the most. It was incredible we were in the game but we were because of our strong shooting.

Iowa's Megan Gustafson, who scored a Big Ten tourney-record 48 points, converted a three-point play for an 87-85 advantage with 1:23 to go. Gustafson also had four blocks, while Alexis Sevillian and Kathleen Doyle each finished with nine points for Iowa. Gustafson leads the nation, averaging 25.3 points per game.

The Hawkeyes will learn their postseason destination and seeding on Selection Monday - March 12.

"I'll just sit back, allow myself some time to heal, and then I'll make my decision", Cook said. "Knowing how gritty we can be and how tough we can battle, it's just good to have that mentality going into the semifinals".
