Iowa defeated Maryland in a men’s basketball matchup at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Monday. The Hawkeyes defeated the Terrapins, 80-75.

Over the course of 12 years, Iowa improved to 119-27 in games where the Hawkeyes scored 80 points or more.

With the win, Iowa avoided an 0-3 start to Big Ten play. Iowa forward Keegan Murray called the game a big win. “It’s a good win for a lot of our new guys to see what it’s like to win in the Big Ten and how tough it is,” Murray said. Murray, the nations leading scorer, tied a career-high 35 points in the victory. 

Interim head coach for Maryland, Danny Manning, dropped to 3-2 with his new position. The Terrapins parted ways with former head coach Mark Turgeon on Dec. 5. 

Iowa next matches up with Wisconsin in Madison on Thursday, Jan. 6
