• Northwestern ended a five-game losing streak Saturday with a 62-57 victory over Nebraska. Four Wildcats scored in double figures, led by Miller Kopp with 15 points and graduate transfer Pat Spencer with 14. Spencer is in his first year playing college basketball after winning the Tewaaraton Award as the top lacrosse player in the country at Loyola (Md.).

• Like Iowa, Northwestern has been hurt by injuries. Starting point guard Anthony Gaines is out for the year and freshman guard Boo Buie is out indefinitely. Iowa’s Jordan Bohannon and Jack Nunge are out for the year and freshmen CJ Fredrick and Patrick McCaffery also are sidelined.
