The Iowa women’s basketball team (15-12, 8-8) fell to Northwestern (16-11, 7-9), 72-66, on Sunday in Evanston, Ill.

Sophomore Kamille Wahlin posted 22 points, and sophomore Kelly Krei added 13.

Junior Kachine Alexander also tallied 17 points, 10 rebounds, and four assists in the loss — her 13th double-double of the season.

The Wildcats shot an impressive 60 percent from behind the arc while holding the Hawkeyes to just 36.4 percent in the game.

Iowa trailed 30-28 at halftime but couldn’t put together a comeback in the second half.

“I don’t feel like our players really had their feet prepared to shoot today,” head coach Lisa Bluder said.

The loss snaps a four-game winning streak for the Hawkeyes, and it was only their second loss in the last nine games.

Iowa will return home to host Indiana on “Senior Night” at 7 p.m. Thursday in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
