IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder says isn’t sure whether she’d like to see the Hawkeyes play Northwestern or Nebraska in their opening game of this week’s Big Ten tournament. Iowa earned the third seed for the tournament, held from Thursday to Sunday in Indianapolis, with its current eight-game winning streak. The Hawkeyes (19-10, 11-5) will play either the Wildcats or Huskers on Friday. Bluder says they’d be confident playing Northwestern because they swept the Wildcats this season. But she says Iowa would love the opportunity to play Nebraska again after the Huskers swept the Hawkeyes.
