CHICAGO (AP) - Nicholas Baer made five of Iowa's 12 3-pointers and scored 17 points, helping the Hawkeyes pull away from Illinois for an 83-62 victory on Thursday in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament.

Iowa turned up its play in the second half to stop a four-game losing streak and hand coach Fran McCaffery his first win since he returned Sunday after a two-game suspension for berating an official. The Hawkeyes went 12 for 23 from beyond the arc and turned 15 Illini turnovers into 24 points.

It was a similar performance to their meeting in the regular season, when Iowa shot 68 percent from the field in a 95-71 victory over Illinois on Jan. 20.

Next up for the Hawkeyes (22-10) is No. 10 Michigan on Friday night.

The Fighting Illini (12-21) used a 9-0 run to trim the Hawkeyes' lead to 30-29 with 4:38 left in the first half, but they gradually fell off the pace from there.
