Head Coach: Lute Olson
Attendance: 6,076


Despite the 14-point win, the game was much closer, thanks to a motivated Husky team playing in front of an Evans Field House attendance record crowd of 6,076. The Hawks were trailing in the first half, and had a slight 22-20 halftime lead. They played back and forth in the 2nd half, but slowly Iowa pulled away, outscoring NIU by 12.

Vince Brookins and Steve Krafcisin both had 14 points and 8 rebounds. Kevin Boyle also added 14 points.
