The Wildcats look to pick up their first Big Ten home win.

NCAA Basketball: Northwestern at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off a second straight win, the Northwestern Wildcats (14-4, 3-2 Big Ten) host the Iowa Hawkeyes (11-7, 3-2 Big Ten) in Evanston in a crucial conference matchup.

Both teams earned victories their last time out: Northwestern overcame a sluggish first half to beat Rutgers 69-60 in Piscataway while Iowa beat Purdue 83-78 in overtime in Iowa City.

The Hawkeyes blew the Wildcats out of the water 85-71 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in the team’s only meeting last year. But this, of course, is a very different team than last year’s, especially with a healthy Vic Law Jr. and a completely transformed Scottie Lindsey. Lindsey especially will be one to watch; Iowa pulled his scholarship offer after he suffered a broken leg in high school.

The visitors are very young — three of their top four scorers are freshmen — and have settled in after an inconsistent nonconference slate. Peter Jok leads the way at 22.9 points per game, and he scored 29 (along with six rebounds and eight assists) in the win over Purdue. True freshman Tyler Cook averages 12.6 per game, the only other Hawkeye averaging double figures.
