Aaron White Almost Decapitates the Coach with a Shoe, and Iowa Beats Northwestern by 20

Josh Oglesby had a season high and yada yada yada did you see Fran almost get hit with a shoe?

Aaron White had 17 points and six rebounds, Josh Oglesby scored a season-high 14 points, and Roy Marble had eight points and five assists on his return from an ankle injury as Iowa dismantled Northwestern 70-50 in Evanston Sunday afternoon. The Wildcats shot just 29.4 percent from the field and 5/26 (19.2%) from behind the three-point arc. Both teams endured a sluggish start; the Hawkeyes made just 5 of their first 18 shots, and the score was tied at 11 after 14 minutes. Iowa then embarked on a 14-4 run to end the half with a ten-point lead. That lead only expanded in a 45-point second half, highlighted by Iowa's repeated dismantling of Northwestern's 1-3-1 zone defense. The Hawkeyes eventually finished shooting 46.0 percent from the field, outrebounded the Wildcats 39-28, and dished out 22 assists to Northwestern's nine. And when Northwestern only has nine assists, Northwestern loses.

OK, that's out of the way. Let's get to the important thing: Aaron White threw a shoe at Fran McCaffery. I should clarify: He didn't intentionally throw a shoe at McCaffery as much as he threw a shoe wildly and it almost hit McCaffery. Late in the second half, a Northwestern player lost his shoe in the lane. In an attempt to avoid any more sprained ankles, White picked up the shoe and flung it toward the sideline. The shoe came out like a bullet, and McCaffery dodged it like he was freaking Neo, man.

The shoe actually hit a fan in the stands, but the fan was reading a book so that the shoe hit him in the crest of the skull, rather than taking out an eye. No harm, no foul, total awesomeness.

Iowa gets the week off before facing Wisconsin Saturday in the friendly confines of Carver Hawkeye Arena.
