IOWA CITY, IA (UNCW) -- Iowa used its decided size advantage and deep bench to race out to an early margin and cruise to an 82-39 victory over UNCW in the 2013-14 men’s basketball season opener for Buzz Peterson’s club.

The Seahawks, making a season-opening swing to America’s heartland, visit Iowa State Sunday for a 1 p.m., EST, pairing with the Cyclones of the Big 12 Conference at Hilton Coliseum in Ames.

In the first meeting between the two clubs late Friday, the Hawkeyes jumped out to a big lead and poured it on to delight a crowd of 15,293 at black and gold Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
“We just could not make a basket,” said fourth-year UNCW Head Coach Buzz Peterson. “They took us out of our offense in the first half and we tried to attack it with dribble drives. When that starts to happen, everything snowballs. “When the ball’s not falling, everything dominos on the other end. We’re a better ball club that we showed tonight. Iowa is a good basketball team, though, and they’re going to make some noise in the Big Ten.”

Sophomore transfer Jarrod Uthoff came off the bench to lead three Hawkeyes in double figures with 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, Freshman guard Peter Jok and senior forward Aaron White added 11 and 10 points for Iowa, which bolted out to a 48-12 cushion at intermission.
Junior forward Cedrick Williams led all scorers with 15 points and added nine rebounds in a solid opening game for UNCW. Junior transfer Addison Spruill added 10 points in a reserve role for the Seahawks.

The Hawkeyes, ranked in the preseason top-25 in some polls, jumped on the cold shooting Seahawks quickly and capitalized on 13 first-half turnovers for a comfortable 26-point advantage at intermission. UNCW shot just 19.2 percent in the first 20 minutes and finished at 22.2 percent on 16-of-72 field goals on the night.

Fran McCaffery’s team scored the first nine points of the contest before Williams got the Seahawks on the board with a jumper at the 15:41 mark of the first period. But the Seahawks made just three of their first 16 field goal attempts to trail, 25-7, at the first media time out and the lead ballooned to 34-7 after the Hawkeyes completed a 24-3 run.

Iowa led, 35-12, with just over three minutes left in the first half and closed out the frame by scoring the final 13 points, including a triple by Roy Devyn Marble in the front of the Seahawk bench as time expired in the first half for a commanding 48-12 lead.

The Hawkeyes stretched the lead to as many as 47 points before the final verdict. A jump shot by Jok with 6:30 on the clock gave Iowa a 73-26 bulge before the Seahawks whittled away at the large lead in the final six minutes.

Williams, a third-year player from Murfreesboro, Tenn., was a bright spot for the Seahawks. He scored on a variety of shots, despite being in foul trouble most of the night. The 6-9 forward even drained his first career 3-pointer at the 8:20 mark of the first half with a laser from the right wing.

GAME NOTES: Iowa scored 42 of its 82 points in the paint…The Hawkeye bench contributed 49 points…UNCW had 13 turnovers in the first half, but committed just one miscue after the break…Cedrick Williams went 6-of-8 from the floor and the rest of the team connected on only 10-of-64 field goals…The Seahawks were a frosty 2-of-23 behind the arc…Iowa was whistled for just 10 personal fouls…All 11 players that dressed saw action and seven scored…UNCW’s three starting guards went a combined 3-for-24....The Seahawks dropped to 20-18 in season openers since turnover Division I in 1976-77…Coach Buzz Peterson now stands 1-3 in season openers during his four seasons at UNCW….Iowa had 12 blocks and seven dunks in the rout.

WILMINGTON, NC (CFCC) -– Cape Fear Community College’s men’s basketball team lost to Richard Bland, 90-81, here Friday night in the first game of a two-day tournament.
It was the third loss in as many games for coach Ryan Mantlo’s squad.
Mantlo noted that the Sea Devils didn’t box out under the boards. “We didn’t do a good job tonight on the glass,” he said. “We have to do a better job of limiting opponents to one shot.”
Anthony Williams led Cape Fear with 25 points, followed by Demetres Abrams with 11.

AKRON, OH (CCU) -- The Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina fell behind by 20-plus points in both the first and second halves on the road at the University of Akron but the team fought back on both occasions to cut the lead to under-10 but was unable to slow down the Zips. Freshman Elijah Wilson made his college debut with a game-high 15-point performance while hitting four-of-five from the free throw line.

The Zips used a tenacious full court press the entire game that cause a number of issues for CCU’s inexperienced back court. The Chants combined for 20 turnovers that led to 21 Akron points. The Chants defense stood strong forcing 17 Akron turnovers which turned into 15 points for the Chants.

The Zips edged the Chants on the boards 38-37 and used 14 offensive rebounds to convert 17 second-chance points.

Junior Warren Gills scored 11 points while graduate-transfer Eric Smith and junior college-transfer each added nine. Smith led the Chants with three assists and a pair of steals. Senior El Hadji Ndieguene picked up a team-high seven rebounds while scoring three points, Sophomore Tristian Curtis came off the bench to secure five rebounds and four points.

The Chants played 11 players in the game and all but two scored for CCU. The Chants had 10 players play at least 11 minutes in the game with Wilson leading the team with 33 minutes played.

The Zips were led by a quartet of scorers as Quincy Diggs, Jake Kretzer, Demetrius Treadwell and Nick Harney all scored in double-figures. Treadwell led all players with eight rebounds.

CCU shot 39.0 percent (23-59) from the field including 42.9 percent from three-point range (6-14). The Zips hit 42.4 percent (25-59) of their shots including 31.8 percent (7-22) from three-point range. Both teams struggled from the free throw line as the Chants hit 61.1 percent (11-18) and the Zips hit 57.7 percent (15-26).

The Zips opened the game with an 11-4 run that was capped by a Reggie McAdams three-pointer. Akron continued to push and eventually opened up a 36-15 lead with 5:37 left in the first half. The Chants responded with a 15-5 run that was capped by a three from Smith that was taken five feet beyond the three-point line. The Chants entered the break down 41-30.

A layup by Smith to open the scoring in the second half cut the Zips lead to nine but Akron would once again go on a run. A 14-0 run midway through the second pushed Akron’s lead to 23 points. With 8:18 to play the Chants used an 11-1 run to cut the Zips’ lead to 10 with 4:29 left. Cameron contributed five points to the run while Wilson had four. A layup by sophomore Michel Enanga cut the lead to eight with 2:15 to play but that would be as close as the Chants would get as free throws down the stretch kept the Zips in control.

Coastal will return to action this Monday at 7 p.m. for their home opener against Guilford College.
