IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Aaron White scored a season-high 22 points and Iowa crushed Maryland-Eastern Shore 109-63 Thursday night for its third straight win.

Melsahn Basabe added 12 points and Jarrod Uthoff had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (3-0). Iowa scored 56 points in the first half - a team record under fourth-year coach Fran McCaffery.

The Hawkeyes began play on a 32-9 run, shot 56 percent in the opening half and led by as much as 48-13 before halftime.

Zach McCabe also had 11 points for the Hawkeyes, who had 14 players score while cracking 100 points for just the third time under McCaffery.

Isaac Smith scored 19 points for Maryland-Eastern Shore (1-2). The Hawks won just two games a year ago.

After letting Nebraska-Omaha jump out to a stunning seven-point halftime lead last Sunday, the focus was on how the Hawkeyes would start out against Maryland-Eastern Shore.

No worries on this night.

Iowa forced 11 turnovers and had eight players score during the first half alone. The most spectacular of the 20 shots Iowa made in the first 20 minutes came when Devyn Marble tossed the ball off the backboard to a trailing White, who threw it down to give Iowa a 35-point lead.

It took just 10 seconds into the second half for White to bury a jumper and push Iowa's lead back to 58-23. Marble and White hooked up for an alley-oop a few minutes later - highlighting a connection the Hawkeyes hope to lean on a lot this season.

Marble had 10 points, five assists and four steals.

The Hawkeyes also got an encouraging performance from Mike Gesell, who scored eight points with seven assists in 17 minutes.

Gesell, a sophomore who's moved from point to shooting guard to allow Marble to handle the ball, had struggled mightily in Iowa's first two games.

Gesell had only taken three shots and scored four points in wins over UNC-Wilmington and Nebraska-Omaha. But he opened his night with a pair of 3s and a layup, and the Hawkeyes hit nine of their first 12 shots en route to a 23-7 lead.

Iowa hosts Abilene Christian on Sunday, then face a Penn team picked to finish second in the Ivy League on Nov. 22.

The Hawkeyes likely won't be truly tested until they travel to a tournament in the Bahamas, where they'll face Xavier and have possible matchups with Tennessee and Kansas.
