The Iowa women had two road trips last week, winning a shootout at Northwestern, 102-99, and losing 93-88 at Maryland.
The Northwestern game could have been a big letdown after the Hawkeyes knocked off Nebraska in overtime last week at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Maryland, the leader in the Big Ten, was coming up Sunday and Iowa couldn’t afford to overlook the ‘Cats.
The Hawks had beaten the Wildcats at home on Jan. 14, 83-70.
Iowa led only 41-38 at half and pulled the victory out with Bethany Doolittle leading the way with 26 points.
