The Northwestern Wildcats will meet the Iowa Hawkeyes in the first round of the Big Ten Conference Tournament on this Thursday. These two haven't seen each other since Jan. 25 and the Wildcats would love to forget about it as they were embarrassed on their home court by a score of 76-50.

Olaseni had 14 points and 10 rebounds while Marble added 14 points, five rebounds and two assists.
