Devyn Marble, Iowa's leading scorer, made the trip with his teammates to Evanston, Ill., today.

Whether or not he tries to play in Sunday's 4:30 p.m. game against Northwestern remains up in t

he air.

Iowa spokesman Matt Weitzel said Saturday afternoon that nothing has changed from Thursday, when Iowa coach Fran McCaffery called Marble “iffy” for the Wildcats following Iowa's 62-59 loss to Michigan State.

Marble, a junior who averages 15.5 points a game, was injured in practice Monday. The game with the Spartans was the first one Marble has missed at Iowa.

Eric May started in place of Marble in a loss that dropped the Hawkeyes to 0-3 in the Big Ten and 11-5 overall. Northwestern, coming off a 70-54 victory at Penn State Thursday, is 1-2 in the Big Ten and 10-6 overall.

The Wildcats lost their second-leading scorer, Drew Crawford, to a season-ending shoulder injury six games ago. Crawford was averaging 13.5 points.
