Iowa beats Northwestern 71-57


February 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Devyn Marble broke a lengthy slump with 21 points and Iowa beat Northwestern 71-57 on Saturday to snap a two-game losing streak.  Josh Oglesby added 10 for the Hawkeyes (15-9, 4-7 Big Ten), who won for just the second time in six games.

Marble, Iowa’s second-leading scorer, put together his best scoring night in nearly two months as the Hawkeyes bounced back from a double-overtime loss at Wisconsin on Wednesday. Marble entered play in a staggering spiral, with just 21 baskets on 83 tries in Big Ten play and just two points in his last two games.

Reggie Hearn had 13 to lead Northwestern, which let the Hawkeyes take control with a 10-0 run midway through the second half.  The Wildcats (13-11, 4-7) lost for the third time in four games.

Iowa searches for late-game answers


February 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — There might not be a team in the country as unlucky as Iowa. Iowa (14-9, 3-7 Big Ten) has lost once to each of the top seven teams in the Big Ten standings. Five of those defeats have come by four points or less with the game in doubt in final minute. The Hawkeyes’ confidence is a major topic of conversation ahead of Saturday’s game against Northwestern (13-10, 4-6). Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says the Hawkeyes still believe in themselves and what they’re doing despite recent setbacks. Pre-game coverage of the game begins at 2:30-p.m., on KJAN.
