The Hawkeyes likely need two big ten tournament wins to break back in to the NCAA tourney bubble. Three might punch a ticket.

The Hawks jumped all over Northwestern of Chicago Thursday.

In the second half, Mike Gezelle got back in the lineup. His shot and his foot both looking good.

An easy win for Iowa, 73-59.

Next up, a much tougher test against Michigan State.
