Peter Jok had 22 of his 26 points in the second half to help third-ranked Iowa blow past Northwestern 85-71 on Sunday.

Jarrod Uthoff scored 23 points for the Hawkeyes (17-4, 8-1 Big Ten), who sent Northwestern to its fifth straight loss.

Uthoff shook off his season-low nine points in Thursday's defeat at No. 8 Maryland with 19 in the first half as Iowa went up by 16. Jok followed with three straight 3s and Iowa rolled to its seventh league win by at least 10 points.
