    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Aaron Fuller scored a career-high 24 points and Iowa sunck past Tennessee State 67-62 on Tuesday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

    But what was supposed to be a confidence builder for the struggling Hawkeyes (6-11) turned out to be a nail-biter.

    The Tigers (4-14) tied the game at 60-all on Robert Covington's putback with 2:22 left. But Iowa's Cully Payne hit a 3 as the shot clock expired and added two free throws to give Iowa a 65-60 lead with 1:17 left.

    Iowa's Matt Gatens scored 12 points, including a pair of free throws with 24.6 seconds left to ice the win.

    Josh Sain had 19 points for Tennessee State, which lost for the sixth time in seven games.
