(IOWA CITY) - Michigan coach Juwan Howard has seen enough of Iowa's Luka Garza this season. Garza scored 33 points in Iowa's 90-83 win over No. 19 Michigan on Friday night. Howard, the first-year coach of the Wolverines, knew nothing about Garza before the season. But after this game, and the 44 point effort the center had against Michigan in Iowa's 103-91 loss in December, Howard knows plenty. Garza, the Big Ten's scoring leader, was 10 of 18 from the field and 11 of 13 from the line. He drew 12 fouls from the Wolverines, which was his plan all along. Iowa was 27 of 30 from the line, while Michigan was just 4 of 5, numbers that Howard recited after the game. CJ Fredrick had 21 points, Joe Wieskamp 20 and Ryan Kriener came off the bench to score 14 for the Hawkeyes. Iowa (13-5, 4-3 Big Ten), which led by as many as 11 points in the first half, trailed 72-65 with 9:42 to play before going on a 13-2 run that included seven points by Garza and two 3-pointers by Fredrick. That came after Michigan had gone on a 17-4 run. Eli Brooks broke out of a shooting slump to lead Michigan (11-6, 2-4) with 25 points. Franz Wagner scored 18 points, Jon Teske had 14 points and David DeJulius had 10 for the Wolverines.
