From the 18:17 mark of the first half, this one was all Iowa.

Marquette's Duane Wilson fights to get around a pick set by Iowa's Adam Woodbury as Iowa's Anthony Clemmons drives with the ball during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015, in Milwaukee.

The Hawkeyes exploded on an early first-half run to race past Marquette 89-61 in the Gavitt Tipoff Games in Milwaukee.

Iowa's 19-4 run, taking place between the 18:17 and 10:36 marks in the first half, gave the Hawkeyes (3-0) a 23-6 lead that only swelled as the Thursday night game went on. Iowa held a 48-21 advantage at half.

Peter Jok (20 points) led a balanced scoring effort that saw six Hawkeyes finished in double figure.

Marquette, which struggled to a 13-19 finish in 2014-15, dropped to 1-2.
