Iowa lost scoring leader Roy Marble and seemed on the verge of losing its first game of the season, its Big Ten lead and No. 1 ranking in one swoop. But Kevin Gamble stepped forward to score 19 points as the Hawkeyes, who ascended to No. 1 earlier in the day, got past fifth-ranked Purdue, 79-76, Monday night at West Lafayette, Ind. Gamble hit 9 of 10 shots from the field and filled in after Marble scratched the cornea of his right eye in the first half.

Iowa used some aggressive rebounding and 23 points from Roy Marble to keep North Carolina off balance Saturday at Chapel Hill, N.C. But it took a little luck to put Marble on the free-throw line so the No. 9 Hawkeyes could beat the No. 6 Tar Heels. North Carolina's Jeff Lebo missed a short jumper with 22 seconds left that would have broken a 97-97 tie, and a foul was called in a scramble under the Iowa basket.

UC Irvine's basketball team has played three games already this season, but the Anteaters remain an enigma. They won their first two at home in the Freedom Bowl tournament, beating Army, 90-68, and Manhattan, 86-83, before losing on the road Tuesday to Pepperdine, 91-89. The results are not so surprising--considering that the first two teams are among the weakest in Division I and the third figures to be a West Coast power. It's the way Irvine has played that is perplexing.

Coach Tom Davis said senior forward Kevin Gamble came to the rescue of his fourth-ranked Hawkeyes as Iowa rallied to beat Arizona, 89-80, in a nonconference basketball game Saturday. "We struggled in the first half, mainly due to Arizona's great defense," Davis said. "They had shut out (sophomore forward Ed) Horton and (sophomore guard Roy) Marble, so someone else had to pick up the slack. Gamble did that."
