The Gopher women completed their annual beat-down of Iowa at the Sports Pavilion tonight, downing the Hawkeyes 25-14, 25-14, 25-18. :clap::clap::clap: I had heard this was one of Iowa's better squads in recent memory, but I didn't really see it. They have a couple of nice outsides, but had really big problems with serve receive, passing, and defense for the most part.

Having seen both Wisconsin and Iowa for the weekend, I'm pretty surprised that the Badgers lost at home to the Hawkeyes in their Big Ten opener. Then again, the Badgers have really struggled so far and even though the Gophers dominated both teams pretty well, the Hawkeyes do have a couple of decent hitters in their lineup.

As for tonight's match, Iowa did get ahead 7-4 and 11-7 in the first set at a couple of points. But from there, the Gophers took over and never looked back, playing a lot of subs in game three.

11-3 and 2-0 in the Big Ten with road trips to Purdue and Indiana coming up next weekend..
