IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa’s women’s basketball team has seen plenty of different defenses this season. The zone that the Hawkeyes, the No. 2 seed in Seattle Regional 4, will see in 10th seed Georgia in Sunday’s NCAA Tournament second-round game is just the latest test. Georgia (22-11) held Florida State to 26.9% shooting overall in Friday’s 66-54 first-round game. Now the Lady Bulldogs get the Hawkeyes (27-6), who led the nation in scoring at 87.5 points per game and in field-goal percentage at 51.1%. Iowa also shot 37.2 percent in 3-pointers, 10th best in the nation.
