IOWA CITY, Iowa Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery sat comfortably out of sight at Carver-Hawkeye Arena as his team comfortably dispatched Northwestern 93-67 last night.

McCaffery watched the game from his office while serving a one-game suspension for violating the Big Ten's sportsmanship policy. With assistant Kirk Speraw taking the reins, the Hawkeyes played with poise and efficiency in burying the Wildcats.

No. 20/23 Iowa (13-3, 2-1 Big Ten) scored the game's first 10 points and were never seriously challenged. the opening run included free throws, a 3-pointer from Devyn Marble, a jumper from Adam Woodbury and a Melsahn Basabe tip-in. The Wildcats trimmed the margin to four points three different times, but then Iowa quickly put the game out of reach.

The Hawkeyes completed a 9-1 run with Jarrod Uthoff and Mike Gesell each hitting 3-pointers. Uthoff also knocked down a jumper, and Gesell sank a free throw

But the night belonged to Basabe. The 6-foot-7 senior became the 42nd player in Iowa history to reach 1,000 career points. He finished 16 and grabbed 10 rebounds for his 14th career double-double.

Basabe reached the milestone at the free-throw line, where he knocked down both shots with 1:40 left in the first half.

White scored a team-high 18 points and was 10-for-10 from the free-throw line, all in the first half. He also added 10 rebounds. Marble chipped in with 15 points. JerShon Cobb led Northwestern with 18 points.

Iowa dominated Northwestern (7-9, 0-3) on the boards throughout the game. The Hawkeyes picked up the game's first six rebounds and won the battle 41-28.

The Hawkeyes shot 57 percent from both the field (29-51) and 3-point range (8-14). Iowa connected on 27 of 36 free throws.

The Hawkeyes have little time to relax. McCaffery will lead the team against No. 3 Ohio State (15-1, 2-1) on Sunday at Value City Arena.
