A perfect night for Gustafson leads No. 13 Iowa past WKU

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO)-- A dominating night for Megan Gustafson with 29 points on a perfect 13-of-13 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead No. 13 Iowa past Western Kentucky 104-67 Tuesday night in E.A. Diddle Arena.

"That was an old-fashioned butt whopping," Head coach Greg Collins said. "Gustafson is probably the best post player in the country this year and I mentioned before we played this it felt like she shot 100 percent when you watch because every time she caught the ball she scored, and we let her shoot 100 percent tonight."

The Lady Toppers had four players score in double figures, but Iowa's 68 percent shooting from the field with 13 made three-pointers was the difference in the game.

WKU (0-3) is back on the road for the second time in a one-week span to make the trip to Mount Pleasant, Mich., to take on Central Michigan. Action against the Chippewas is set for a noon CT tip on Saturday.
