EVANSTON, ILLINOIS – Iowa defeated Northwestern, 73-63, Wednesday night in a Big Ten road game.

Iowa has won seven of its last eight games, dating back to Dec. 6.

Iowa played the game without its leading scorer and rebounder, Tyler Cook, who did not play due to a sore knee.

Freshman Joe Wieskamp led the Hawkeyes in scoring for the fourth time this season, netting 15 of his game-best 19 points in the second half.

After starting 4-of-8 from the free throw line, Iowa finished the game making 17 of its final 18 free throws.

Iowa improved to 5-0 all-time versus Northwestern in games played on Jan. 9.

Iowa returns to action on Saturday, hosting nationally-ranked Ohio State at 1:30 p.m. (CT) on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. A limited number of tickets remain:
