IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Mike Gesell scored a career-high 25 points and Iowa cruised past top-ranked Michigan State 83-70 on Tuesday night, handing the Spartans their first loss of the season.
   Peter Jok had 19 points for the Hawkeyes (10-3), which toppled a No. 1 team for the first time in 16 years.
   Iowa never trailed in what turned out to be a surprisingly easy win over the Spartans (13-1). The Hawkeyes led by as much as 19 in snapping a nine-game losing streak against Michigan State.
   Eron Harris scored 21 points to lead the Spartans. They were playing their second game without injured star Denzel Valentine -- their leader in scoring, rebounds and assists -- and their first since coach Tom Izzo's father Carl died Monday.
