Northwestern coach Bill Carmody admitted guard Reggie Hearn has yet to fully recover from spraining his ankle during Christmas break.
"He's still not 10o percent. He's not jumping really well right now but he's giving it 100 percent."
Hearn sat out a loss to Michigan in the Big Ten season opener before scoring 11 in a loss at Minnesota on Jan. 6. The senior had six points in 26 minutes in Sunday afternoon's 70-50 loss to Iowa at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
