Fran McCaffery lamented the officiating following Iowa’s 82-67 loss to Michigan State on Thursday night, but it was the Hawkeyes poor shooting and inability to keep the Spartans off the glass that was their undoing.

The Hawkeyes attempted eight less free throws in the first half, but led 35-31 at intermission. They attempted five less free throws in the second half and were outscored by 19.

Iowa travels to Minnesota on Sunday for the only meeting of the season with the Golden Gophers.
