IU beats #4 Iowa 85-78

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell scored 14 points and Troy Williams added 13 and Indiana rallied to upset No. 4 Iowa 85-78 on Thursday night after blowing a big lead.
    
Indiana (20-5, 10-2 Big Ten) pulled into a three-way for the conference lead and gave coach Tom Crean his fourth 20-win season at the school.
    
Jarrod Uthoff led the Hawkeyes (19-5, 10-2) with 24 points, and Mike Gesell had 17. Iowa lost for the first time in four games.
    
It could have been much easier.
    
Indiana was cruising in the first half, building a 16-point lead before giving it away.
    
The Hawkeyes closed to 45-38 at the half and scored the first nine points of the second half to take their first lead since the opening minutes.
    
Trailing 60-56 with 9:35 left, Indiana regained the lead with 14-2 run and never trailed again.
