The Wildcats (14-18) became the first 11th-seed to win in the Big Ten tournament. They went on a 7-2 run when Crawford made a lay-up to give the Wildcats a 55-51 lead with 3:52 remaining before Alex Olah drew a charge and scored a pair of free throws.

Dave Sobolewski hit a 3-pointer with 2:20 remaining to give the Wildcats a 60-53 advantage.

Roy Devyn Marble had 25 points and Jarrod Uthoff finished with 17 points and nine rebounds off the bench for the sixth-seeded Hawkeyes (20-11), who have lost 6-of-7 games.

The Wildcats, who lost 7 of 8 games heading into the contest, will face No. 22 Michigan State in the quarterfinal Friday.
