Iowa used a 17-2 run in the first half to pull away from Coppin State (3-10). The Eagles didn't score on 16 of 17 possessions during that 10-minute stretch.
Coppin State had 14 points and 12 turnovers at halftime. Sterling Smith, Troy Franklin and Andre Armstrong each scored nine points to lead the Eagles.
Gabe Olaseni scored a career-high 14 points for Iowa, which doesn't play again until the Big Ten opener Dec. 31 against No. 6 Indiana.
