MINNEAPOLIS -- Something strange happened Wednesday while the University of Iowa women's basketball team rolled to its third consecutive win.

That odd occurrence is that the Hawkeyes actually trailed Minnesota -- albeit briefly -- during a 64-56 victory at Williams Arena.

Iowa (17-5 overall, 5-3 Big Ten Conference) led wire-to-wire in its last three wins at Wisconsin and Ohio State and at home versus Indiana. Against the Gophers (13-9, 2-6), the Hawkeyes led all but 1-minute, 56-seconds in the second half and came out on top for a fifth time in the last six games.

Iowa was ahead by 18 points -- 63-45 -- with 2:06 remaining.

"I don't remember coming to Minnesota and having that situation ever before," UI head coach Lisa Bluder said of the late lopsided score. "It feels really good. I felt our team's defense was very good; our rebounding in the second half was good. It was such a great team performance."

UI junior Samantha Logic was two rebounds from a triple-double, finishing with 12 points, 10 assists, and eight boards.
