IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Omaha coach Derrin Hansen told his team to be ready for Iowas best shot in the second half.The Mavericks got it, but they had an answer every time.Zach Jackson scored a career-high 21 points, Tra-Deon Hollins had 12 points and 11 assists, and Omaha upset Iowa 98-89 on Saturday for its first win against a Big Ten team.Jackson scored seven points in the final two minutes and TreShawn Thurman added 17 points for the Mavericks (4-4).Iowa battled back from an 11-point second-half deficit to cut Omahas lead to 87-84 with 1:53 left. But Jackson hit a 3-pointer on Omahas next possession and the Hawkeyes never got any closer.We said, `Theyre going to make a run. Its going to happen, Hansen said. But what we cant do is come down, just because their crowd is loud, and shoot our first one. We stay disciplined there.The Hawkeyes (3-5) have lost four straight and are off to their worst start since 2009. Peter Jok led Iowa with 33 points and 10 rebounds.Iowa went five minutes without a field goal in the second half as Omaha turned a tight game into an eight-point lead. Later, the Mavericks pushed it to 79-68 with 7 1/2 minutes left.The Hawkeyes were outrebounded 47-39. Their defense continues to be a problem. Fran McCaffery switched to a zone defense in the second half, but it wasnt enough.We havent defended in any of (our games), McCaffery said. Weve outscored people. That has to change.Mitch Hahn had 15 of Omahas 37 bench points. Iowa got nine points from its bench.Iowas Jordan Bohannon scored 20 points on six 3-pointers in his second start.BIG PICTUREIowa: The Hawkeyes continue to struggle defensively -- especially down low. Iowa is allowing a Big Ten-worst 85 points per game. Omaha dominated the inside with 40 points in the paint and 20 second-chance points.Omaha: This was a signature win for a program that hadnt beaten a Power Five team in two years. It should provide a big confidence boost for the Mavericks, picked to finish fourth in the Summit League. Omahas season starts with seven of its first nine games on the road.HE SAID ITI dont know that one. Its top-something. . Ive been here 18 years, not 100 years. I dont know all that. I know the hair and stuff makes it look like Ive been here longer than 18, Hansen said, when asked where this win stacks up in program history.Omaha was 0-11 all-time against the Big Ten going into the game.STAR WATCHJok is off to a phenomenal start for the Hawkeyes. The guard leads the Big Ten in scoring and reached the 30-point mark for the third time this season. Iowa had just one 30-point scorer all of last year.Jok made 5 of 10 3-pointers and all 12 of his free throws. Jok has shot 41 of 43 (95 percent) from the foul line this season.UP NEXTIowa: Hosts Stetson on Monday and then turns its attention to cross-state rival Iowa State, which is ranked No. 19.Omaha: Doesnt leave the state of Iowa for its next game, traveling to Ames on Monday to face Iowa State in what will be the Mavericks seventh road game of the season. White Air VaporMax 2018 . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. Black Air VaporMax Shoes . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. http://www.cheapairvapormaxoutlet.com/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap Air VaporMax Discount . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Supply Air VaporMax Shop . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. RIO DE JANEIRO --?Ashleigh Johnson and KK Clark joined a couple of Brazilian dancers for a samba lesson. Maggie Steffens grabbed an American flag for the party on the pool deck. One by one, the players draped their gold medals around the neck of grieving coach Adam Krikorian.The U.S. saved its best for last, and Italy never stood a chance. Johnson made nine saves, Kiley Neushul scored three goals on four shots and the United States routed Italy 12-5 on Friday for its second straight Olympic gold medal in womens water polo.To play as well as we did today in that moment and that atmosphere in a gold-medal game when youve been thinking about this for the last four years is just, its a dream come true, Krikorian said.Makenzie Fischer and Rachel Fattal each had two goals for the Americans, who stretched their win streak to 22 games with their sixth victory in Rio by a combined score of 73-32.I think we really did change the game, said Johnson, who was voted the top goaltender of the tournament.?We played completely different than the games ever been played before. Really fast, intelligent, its really fun to watch and its great to play.Russia took home the bronze, beating Hungary 19-18 on penalty shots. Its the first womens water polo medal for Russia since 2000.Neushul and Steffens each gave Krikorian a big hug as they left in the final minute, and Neushul patted him on the head. When the final seconds ticked off, Krikorian walked over to congratulate Italy coach Fabio Conti, and then he was tackled into the pool by a couple of his jubilant players.In another Olympics dominated by U.S. women, Steffens -- the MVP and probably the best player in the world -- and her teammates shined as brightly as any of them.The water polo tournament shifted to the Olympic Aquatics Stadium following the swimming competition, and the array of Pac-12 stars who dominate the U.S. roster picked up right where Katie Ledecky & Co. left off, wearing down their opponents with superior speed, athleticism and strength.The U.S. women were the overwhelming favorites all along -- and they played like it. The 12 goals and seven-goal margin were records for the Olympic final.USA is, in this moment, a team of another universe, Conti said. The Americans pounded Brazil 13-3 befoore outslugging Hungary 14-10 in the semifinals.dddddddddddd They held the lead after 23 of their 24 quarters and trailed for a total of only 44 seconds -- in the first quarter against Hungary on Wednesday.Its one of the best teams Ive ever been a part of, and Ive been a part of some really amazing teams, Neushul said. The team is so versatile, so many different threats. We have speed. We have size. We have athleticism, and I think this team was one of the first teams to display all those different styles in one team.By the time Krikorian and the U.S. staff hit the pool for a celebratory swim, the Americans possessed each of the major crowns in womens water polo, adding a second Olympic gold to their world championship, World Cup and World League Super Final titles.The scene after the final was the top of an emotional roller coaster for Krikorian, who rushed home before the United States first game to be with his family after the sudden death of his brother Blake, a former water polo player at UCLA and beloved Silicon Valley entrepreneur. Before departing for California, Krikorian met with his players and urged them to make the most of their Olympic experience.He returned in time for an opening 11-4 victory over Spain, and then he nearly broke down in tears while talking about his brother after the win. Blakes 49th birthday would have been Thursday, and Krikorians wife, Anicia Mendez, surprised him in Rio to be there with him for the sad day and then the final.Its not about me and its about the team, and that has actually helped me and thats made it actually fairly easy, Krikorian said, and that doesnt take away from the love I have for my family or my brother. Its more of a sign of respect and love that I think we all have for each other.Krikorian brushed away any talk of winning it all for him and his family, insisting Blake himself would think it was a ludicrous notion, but his players pledged their support for their mourning coach. And they delivered with their play -- all the way to the gold medal.Thats what were about, Steffens said, is going out there, having fun and playing the best water polo we can.
