Northwestern used a 17-0 run to come back from a 15-point deficit in the first half against Iowa Saturday, and now lead the Hawkeyes 42-35 at halftime in the regular-season finale at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
During that run, the Wildcats got seven points from Drew Crawford, who leads the Wildcats so far with 12 points and three steals.
Iowa went out to a 23-9 lead on Northwestern midway through the first half amidst an 18-2 run.
If Northwestern wins, that's doesn't guarantee them anything in terms of an NCAA tournament bid. But the winner of this game will be the No. 7 seed in next week's Big Ten tournament in Indianapolis, and will face the No. 10 seed. The loser will play Illinois.
