IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Aaron White scored 20 points as Iowa throttled Coppin State 80-50 on Saturday.
The Hawkeyes (11-2) have won six straight games for the first time in eight years.
White made 7 of 8 shots from the floor and 6 of 7 from the foul line. The forward had six dunks -- including a nice one-hand slam off an alley-oop.
The Hawkeyes scored 50 points in the paint and missed all 17 of their 3-point attempts.
Iowa used a 17-2 run in the first half to pull away from Coppin State (3-10). The Eagles didn't score on 16 of 17 possessions during that 10-minute stretch.
Gabe Olaseni scored a career-high 14 points for Iowa, which doesn't play again until the Big Ten opener Dec. 31 against No. 6 Indiana.
