West Lafayette, IN ( - Coming off their worst loss of the season, the 25th-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes turn their attention to the Purdue Boilermakers for a Big Ten Conference clash at Mackey Arena. Iowa began its two-game road trip on Tuesday night with a lopsided 82-50 loss at the hands of No. 6 Wisconsin. It was a stark contrast from the same Hawkeyes squad that had won five of its previous six games to climb into the national rankings. Following this tilt, they will play three of their next four back at home. Purdue has been on the losing end of three of its last four contests. Most recently, the Boilermakers were dealt a 66-57 setback at Illinois on Wednesday night. Purdue leads the all-time series, 86-73, although Iowa has won the last two head-to-head meetings. The Hawkeyes were simply outclassed by Wisconsin earlier this week, as the Badgers knocked down nine 3-pointers for the game (.409) and committed only one turnover. Iowa was also outrebounded, 37-23, and made just four free throws, well short of its season average of 17 entering the tilt. Jarrod Uthoff was the teams lone player in double figures, finishing with 12 points. On the season, Uthoff is averaging 11.8 points and 6.4 rebounds in addition to leading the Hawkeyes with 32 3-pointers made (.390). Aaron White, a 52-percent shooter from the floor, is the top scorer (15.6) and rebounder (6.8). However, he managed only seven points on 2-of-5 shooting against the Badgers. Purdue has three players averaging double figures in the scoring column this season, with Kendall Stephens 10.9 ppg tops on the team. Stephens is dangerous from beyond the arc, where he is shooting 42 percent (48-of-114). A.J. Hammons (10.6 ppg, 6.3 rpg) and Vince Edwards (10.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg) complement Stephens down low. Despite lacking a true go-to scorer, the Boilermakers are putting up a healthy 72.7 ppg and are +6.0 in rebounding margin. Jon Octeus and Rapheal Davis shared team-high scoring honors against Illinois with 14 points apiece. The Boilermakers held Illinois to 28.6-percent shooting from the floor in the first half yet still trailed at the break. The Fighting Illini finished the contest with a huge 21-4 scoring edge at the foul line.

MALELANE, South Africa -- John Daly will play in the European Tours Alfred Dunhill Championship this week as he comes back from elbow surgery. The two-time major winner is in the field at Leopard Creek Golf Club near Kruger National Park in northern South Africa for only his second tournament since an operation to repair a shattered tendon in his right elbow. The American made a promising start at last months BMW Masters on his return to golf before falling away over the weekend to finish 5 over and in a tie for 48th. "I had my surgery done in July and have only played one tournament in four months," Daly said Monday. "Im really fresh and I want to play. I dont want to waste the end of this year. Id like to get something going for the end of this year so I can get on track for next year." Daly also said that he had seen elephants near where hes staying on the edge of Kruger and "woke up to a cobra this morning." "For us being from America you see that kind of stuff in the movies and seeing it live is just incredible," he said. Daly returns to South Africa for the first time since the early 1990s, when he won a couple of tournaments to kick-start his career. "This is where I got my start," Daly said. &quuot;I played really good on the (South African) Sunshine Tour for 1987 through to 1990 and it got my career going.dddddddddddd I played really well over here and it got my confidence going, so that when I went back home it actually helped me get my tour card." Its coming up to a decade since the 1991 PGA Championship winner and 95 British Open champion won on the U.S. or European tours, but he showed promising signs at the BMW Masters in China by opening with a 68. He goes up against 2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel and Brendon de Jonge this week, but the Leopard Creek course could suit him. "Its a ball strikers golf course," Daly said after his first look at the layout. "Youve got to hit the fairways. And the greens are tricky. Its the kind of course where youd almost prefer a 20-footer to a 10-footer on these greens." The Alfred Dunhill is the second of three straight tournaments in South Africa to start the new European season and the 2014 Race to Dubai. Morten Orum Madsen won the South African Open on Sunday, while Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia, Schwartzel and De Jonge are part of a 30-man field at the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City on Dec. 5-8.
