EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) – With leading scorer Tyler Cook out of the lineup, someone had to step up for Iowa to fill the void. Freshman Joe Weiskamp was up to the task.
Wieskamp led the Hawkeyes in scoring for the fourth time this season, netting 15 of his game-best 19 points in the second half as Iowa defeated Northwestern 73-63 last night for its first true road win of the season. Luka Garza added 16 and Isaiah Moss had 12 points for the Hawkeyes (13-3, 2-3 in the Big Ten), who have won seven of eight. Cook, a 6-9 junior forward, sat out with a sore knee and McCaffery said his status is day-to-day.
