ANN ARBOR, Mich.  — Deja Church and Akienreh Johnson both had career scoring highs of 19 points, Michigan dominated the boards and the Wolverines took a 90-81 victory over No. 13 Iowa on Friday.

Church was 9-of-11 shooting and Johnson 6 of 9 with three 3-pointers for the Wolverines (13-9, 4-6 Big Ten), who lost to the Hawkeyes (16-5, 7-3) by 14 on Jan. 17. Kayla Robbins added a career-high 13 points and eight rebounds, leading the Wolverines’ 44-23 dominance on the boards, including 24 on the offensive glass that resulted in 25 second-chance points. Johnson, Robbins and Naz Hillmon combined for 40 bench points to nine for the Iowa reserves.

Iowa led briefly twice in the second quarter and was down 13 early in the fourth before getting within six. But the Wolverines used an 11-4 run to lead by 13 with three minutes remaining.

Megan Gustafson scored 27 points with nine rebounds for Iowa, which had a five-game win streak snapped. It was only second time this season Gustafson didn’t record a double-double. Kathleen Doyle tied a season high with 22 points and Tania Davis scored 15.

The game was originally scheduled for Thursday but was postponed because of cold temperatures that resulted in the university closing for two days.
