IOWA CITY -- Iowa's front-line depth was on display against Pennsylvania tonight.

Iowa's Jarrod Uthoff scoreda game-high 19 points to place the Hawkeyes to a 86-55 blowout at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Uthoff missed only shot from the floor (6-7), hit all six free-throw attempts and recorded the game's signature play.

With 8:15 left in the first half, Uthoff drove the baseline and vaulted above Penn's Cameron Gunter. Gunter got in the way, and Uthoff unloaded with a thunderous dunk. He scored nine points in the first half  and added 10 after halftime.

Uthoff finished with four rebounds, two assists, two turnovers, a steal, a block and no fouls.

Devyn Marble added 13 points and Mike Gesell chipped in with 10 for Iowa. Marble recorded a career-high seven steals and Gesell scored in double digits for the 15th time in his career.

Iowa (5-0) is off until Thursday when the Hawkeyes face Xavier (4-0) at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas.

Penn (1-3) had an atrocious first half, committing 17 turnovers and 17 fouls. The Quakers committed 29 fouls and 25 turnovers.
