WBB: No. 24 Hawkeyes Commit 26 Turnovers, Lose At Illinois

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Karisma Penn scored 18 points, Adrienne GodBold and Amber Moore added 17 apiece, and Illinois closed with a 14-2 run over the final 5:11 to knock off No. 24 Iowa 74-62 on Thursday night.

Penn pulled down eight rebounds for the Illini (12-8, 5-3 Big Ten), whose last victory over Iowa in Champaign was Feb. 9, 2003. Ivory Crawford chipped in 14 points to help Illinois surpass its win total from the 2011-12 season.

Samantha Logic had 13 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for the Hawkeyes (16-6, 5-3) but also committed eight of Iowa's 27 turnovers. Illinois converted those turnovers into 30 points.

What had been a back-and-forth game swung the Illini's way after Iowa's Jaime Printy tied it at 60 with a layup with 5:31 to go. The Hawkeyes wouldn't score again until Kayla Timmerman's jumper with 13 seconds left, after Illinois had reeled off 14 unanswered points.
