Devyn Marble scored 19 points to help Iowa hold on for an important 73-59 victory over Northwestern in the first round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday night.

Mike Gesell added 11 points, including a clinching 3-point play with 1:41 left as the Hawkeyes (21-11) continued their late-season push for a spot in the NCAA tournament with their eighth victory in 10 games.

Reggie Hearn powered a late Northwestern's rally after an awful start, scoring 14 of his 19 points in the second half. He drove inside to trim Iowa's lead to 50-43 with 8:27 left, but Marble and Gesell each hit a big 3-pointer to help the Hawkeyes hold on for their third consecutive victory.

Melsahn Basabe had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Iowa, which shot just 37.1% but enjoyed a 48-31 advantage on the boards.

Alex Olah scored 12 points for Northwestern (13-19) and Tre Demps finished with 11.

    Given their history, last season sure was an odd one for the Chicago Bears. Just as they finally managed to get things right on offense, their defense pulled off quite a disappearing act. Well, it's back. At least, the Bears think it's back.
