IOWA CITY, Iowa – The 2022-23 men’s basketball season is here for the Iowa Hawkeyes and they came out locked in and ready to go. The Hawkeyes defeated Bethune-Cookman by 31 points, with no starters playing over 22 minutes in the contest.
The Hawkeyes came out with the same starting lineup as the exhibition against Truman State.
Tony Perkins at the point, with Payton Sandfort and Patrick McCaffery as the wings. Kris Murray and Filip Rebraca followed at the four and five positions.
Perkins led all scorers with 16 points, followed by Murray (14), Sandfort (13), P. McCaffery (12) and Rebraca (11). Rebraca also had ten boards to complete the double-double.
Compettition will only improve as Iowa has a tough non-confernce schedule before they get into Big Ten play. The Hawkeyes next contest will be Friday Nov. 11th against North Carolina A&T at 7 pm.
