Lucky Sevens: Iowa Women Take Down Northwestern For 7th Straight Win

Stupid Delanyboy 9000, scheduling Iowa women's and men's games at essentially the same time. The men's team is (understandably) sucking up most of the oxygen in the room after their thrilling 67-66 upset win over Wisconsin last night, but spare a moment of the ladies: they downed Northwestern 70-63, their seventh straight win overall. Like the men, the women jumped out to a big halftime lead (38-22). Unlike the men, they did a little bit better job cruising to a win (of course, it didn't hurt that Northwestern isn't very good, unlike the Wisco team the men played).

Morgan Johnson led the way with 18 points, but true freshman Samantha Logic was arguably the player of the game: she had 17 points and led the team with 10 rebounds (her third-straight points-rebounds double double) and 5 assists. She's certainly picked an excellent time to play her best ball of the season. Iowa forced 18 jNW turnovers and shot 38% from 3-point range.

The win improves Iowa to 18-10 overall and 10-5 in B1G play, good enough for a three-way tie for 3rd place with Purdue and Michigan State. The top four teams get first-round byes, which means one of those teams will be left out. Iowa seems to be in pretty good shape to get a bye: they split the season series with Purdue and beat Michigan State in their lone meeting. Iowa also has the most difficult remaining game, though: they host Michigan (a team they beat 58-57 a week ago after a big comeback) on Sunday, while Purdue plays Indiana (1-14 in league play) and Sparty plays Northwestern (4-11). ESPN's most recent Bracketology has them up to a 9-seed and matched up against LSU in the Baton Rouge regional (and a potential second-round date with Stanford). That would be a pretty unwelcome draw, but hey: just keep winning, Hawks, and see where you land.
