Hawkeye Women Beat Illini on Senior Night

Iowa's 69-56 win tonight coupled with Michigan State's home loss to Minnesota moved the Hawkeyes' into a third-place tie with Michigan State with one game remaining.

Iowa improves to 44-16 all-time against Illinois after tonight's victory. Also, Iowa improves to 23-5 against the Fighting Illini in Iowa City. The Hawkeyes have now won 41 of the last 48 meetings against Illinois, including nine of the last 10.

Tonight was Iowa's "Senior Night". The Hawkeyes paid tribute to five outstanding seniors after the contest: Wendy Ausdemore, Kristi Smith, Lindsey Nyenhuis, Nicole VanderPol and Megan Skouby.

All 12 players saw action tonight for Iowa, including senior Nicole VanderPol who say a few seconds late in the game. VanderPol has been sidelined with an injury since the second game of the year.
