Iowa scores crucial victory in tense affair with Iowa ... - The Athletic

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Tucked away in the middle of America with a corn company sponsoring the annual Iowa Iowa State basketball feud, this rivalry is as intense as its high-ranking brothers, but without the championship banners.

They represented two of the nation's top leagues and collided on Thursday night at the Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The Hawkeyes No. 18 scorched the cyclones 98-84. Iowa shot 58.1 percent, joining 9 out of 18 3-point attempts and overtaking the state of Iowa (44-24).

It was a compelling victory in Iowa, and the result is reflected throughout the state every year, almost as long-lived as its football partner. However, this year was not just about the bottom line. The teams gave their annual hiss something spice.

Twice officials and coaches were forced to separate the players in rings – once in the first half, the other when the game ended. Iowa players and coaches left the ground without shaking hands with the cyclones.
