Huskers Face Hawkeyes in Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinals
The Nebraska women's basketball team continues its stay at the 2015 Big Ten Tournament by battling the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday in Hoffman Estates, Ill.

Nebraska shoots for its first win over Iowa this season, as the No. 14 Hawkeyes posted a 78-72 overtime win in Iowa City on Jan. 26, before adding a 69-61 win in Lincoln on Feb. 12. The Huskers have ended Iowa's Big Ten Tournament stay the last three seasons, including a 72-65 championship game win last year. The Big Red also beat the Hawkeyes 76-61 in the 2013 Big Ten quarterfinals at Sears Centre Arena.

Nebraska advanced to the Big Ten quarterfinals for the fourth consecutive season by pounding No. 10 seed Illinois, 86-71, in Thursday's second round. The Huskers led 13-2 to open the game, 49-29 at halftime and 75-47 with just over eight minutes left before settling for the 15-point win.
