NORTH LIBERY, Iowa - The Prime Time League finished up its first week of action with a second round of games Sunday afternoon here at the Recreation Center.
Fans packed the gym again for the opening game that featured Iowa freshman Peter Jok and sophomore Adam Woodbury. They didn't disappoint, scoring 22 and 23 points, respectively. Hawkeye teammate Kyle Meyer added nine in their winning effort.
Jok's three-point shot wasn't as locked in as it was on Thursday's opening night when he connected of 5 of 9 attempts from beyond the arc. Sunday, he dropped in 2 of 6 tries from deep but showed off a nice mid-range game and ability to get all the way to the basket. Overall, he was 8 of 16 from the floor.
Jok has taken on a heavy course load at Iowa this summer to go with his busy basketball schedule. He talked about his acclimation to college life in this video interview from Sunday night.
Woodbury dominated the inside with 10 rebounds and he also dished out four assists. Meyer pulled down eight boards. Their opponents played without Josh Oglesby (injured finger) and Roy Devyn Marble, who along with Aaron White leaves for USA Basketball tryouts on Monday morning.
Iowa sophomores Anthony Clemmons (25 points, seven rebounds, seven assists) and Jarrod Uthoff (29 points, nine boards) led their team to a 15-point victory. Hawkeye classmate Mike Gesell notched 21 points and 15 assists for the losing side in that contest.
Clemmons has really looked good in his first two PTL games. He's played under control, looked pass first and knocked down shots when the defense sags off of him.
Gesell showed no signs of being slowed by the foot injury that hampered him at the end of the season. He's played at a high tempo during both PTL games and it was fun watching he an Clemmons lock up Sunday night.
