CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (KWWL) -

Gabriel Olaseni scored 15 and grabbed 12 boards off the bench as Iowa held off Illinois 81-74.  The win snapped Iowa's 11 game losing streak in Champaign, dating back to 1999.

Iowa opened the first half on a 34-13 run and appeared to be on their way to a blowout victory.  Illinois, however, rallied to pull within 4 and even held a 5 point lead in the second half.  The Hawkeyes would finish strong down the stretch.

Roy Devyn Marble led the way for Iowa with 17 points.
