IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Devyn Marble had 15 points and eight rebounds and No. 22 Iowa opened its Big Ten season with a 67-57 victory over Nebraska on Tuesday night.

Aaron White scored 11 of his 13 points in the first half for the Hawkeyes (12-2, 1-0), who led by as many as 20 points in the second half.

Terran Petteway had 20 points for Nebraska (8-5, 0-1), which shot a season-low 29.9 percent from the field as it lost its 14th straight game to a ranked opponent.

The Cornhuskers got back in the game with a late 20-5 run.

Petteway's 3-pointer with 1:45 left cut the deficit to 60-55. But the Hawkeyes -- who missed 17 free throws in the game -- made 7 of 10 from the line in the final 2 minutes.
