The Iowa Hawkeyes return to Big Ten action tonight with a visit to Northwestern. The Hawks are 3-11 in the in the Big Ten and have not played since an overtime loss to Michigan back on February 16th.

Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says he hopes they’ve taken advantage of the rest and are ready for the stretch run. The Hawks beat the Wildcats in convincing fashion in Iowa City, their most complete effort of the season. He says they will probably have to play a lot better as he says there were some things they did very well against his team in the last game.

Iowa is 9-18 overall. Northwestern is 6-9 in the league race and 17-10 overall.
