IOWA CITY, IOWA (AP) - Devyn Marble and Aaron White each had 15 points as Iowa shrugged off an early 16-point deficit and rolled past Minnesota 72-51 on Sunday for its third straight win.

Freshman Mike Gesell added 11 for the Hawkeyes (17-9, 6-7 Big Ten), who've rattled off three consecutive Big Ten victories for the first time in six years.

Iowa outscored Minnesota 37-10 in a 20-minute stretch spanning the halves, pulling ahead 42-31 with 15:14 left. Eric May's 3 with 8:50 left made it 53-37 Iowa, and a game that started off as a Minnesota rout became a Hawkeyes blowout.

Austin Hollins had 14 points for the Gophers (18-8, 6-7), who've lost three of four and are now tied with Iowa in the league standings.
