Hawks take down Northwestern 73-59 in tourney opener

Posted:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -

Devyn Marble scored 19 as Iowa moved to the Big Ten quarterfinals with a 73-59 win over Northwestern.  The Hawkeye victory was their third over the Wildcats this season.

Mike Gesell returned from a foot injury to tally 11 points as Iowa won their 8th game out of their last 10.

The Hawkeyes opened their game on a 15-2 run, and never looked back en route to the victory.

Iowa still appears to be on the outside of the NCAA bubble as the win over Northwestern likely did little to help their case.  A semifinal win against #8 Michigan State, however, might be Iowa's ticket to an at-large bid.  The Hawkeyes and Spartans meet up at 8 PM Friday in Chicago.
