PARIS — Aaron White scored 18 points on 8-for-10 shooting and Melsahn Basabe scored 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Hawkeyes to an 82-60 victory over the AMW All-Stars on Friday in Paris.

The Hawkeyes, who led by seven points after three quarters, went on a 9-0 run to open the fourth quarter and outscored the All-Stars 20-5 in the period to improve to 3-0 during their European trip.

Iowa shot just 2-of-18 from beyond the arc but dominated the boards, outrebounding its opponent 57-33. Adam Woodbury led the way with nine rebounds.

"I thought we came out with energy and toughness and let everything else fall into place tonight," Basabe said. "We played with an aggressive, attack mentality."

Freshman Peter Jok also was in double figures with 13 points for the Hawkeyes, and Devyn Marble added seven assists on an off shooting night.

Iowa's frontcourt of Woodbury, Zach McCabe, Gabriel Olaseni and Basabe combined for 35 points and 28 rebounds.

"Our rebounding was tremendous and that enabled us to run and limited them to one shot," coach Fran McCaffery said.

The Hawkeyes will play in Paris again today at 1:30 p.m.
