Iowa (13-13, 4-11) at Northwestern (15-11, 6-9)

Line: Northwestern -6.5


Iowa hung in with Michigan State at the Breslin Center on Wednesday, but came up short by a 54-62 count.  Saturday’s game against Northwestern will be the last chance for a Big Ten regular season road win for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa finishes the season with home games against Ohio State and Penn State. In their first meeting with Northwestern, Iowa came out on top 56-51 back on February 7.


Northwestern won on the road on Wednesday 75-53 in Assembly Hall against Indiana. Craig Moore paced the Wildcats with 17 points and was five out of seven from three point land.

This will be senior night for the Wildcats as they hit the road against Purdue and Ohio State to close the Big Ten regular season.
