Iowa deals No. 2 Missouri first loss

The Associated Press

        COLUMBIA, Mo. — Luke Recker scored a career-high 31 points and helped stifle All-America Kareem Rush as No.15 Iowa beat previously undefeated and No. 2 Missouri 83-65 Saturday night.

        Iowa (9-3) also got 15 points and 17 rebounds from Reggie Evans and shot 49 percent to avenge a bitter loss to the Tigers about a month ago. Missouri (9-1) scored 16 of the last 20 points for a 78-77 victory in the championship game of the Guardians Classic on Nov.21 in Kansas City but shot a season-worst 33.3 percent in the rematch.

        Evans' fifth straight double-double and eighth of the season helped Iowa dominate on the boards, with the Hawkeyes holding a 48-35 advantage.

        Recker, who topped his previous high of 29 against Penn State Feb.4, 1998, was 10-for-17, including 4-for-5 from 3-point range, and 7-for-7 from the line.
