    Every second counted in Northwestern's game against the nationally-ranked Hawkeyes in Iowa City on Feb. 3, 2013. Despite trailing by as many as 15 points in the second half, NU stormed back and led by two at 65-63 with less than a minute to play.

    Iowa then made things interesting as Melissa Dixon's jumper knotted things up at 65-65 with just three seconds showing but the Wildcats were determined to end the game in regulation. With the clock winding down, NU sophomore point guard Karly Roser used her speed and vision to go coast-to-coast and sink her game-winning layup as the horn sounded to give Northwestern the 67-65 win and the program's first victory in Iowa City since 1995.

    "It was a great college basketball game," Northwestern head coach Joe McKeown said. "We were fortunate enough to make one more play at the end. ... It's good for us to keep our poise, being down, and be able to come back and just be able to make some plays at the end. ... I think Karly Roser played with a lot of poise in the second half. In the second half I think she had complete control of our team."

    At the end of the 2012-13 season, Roser was one of four Wildcats, along with seniors Kendall Hackney and Dannielle Diamant and freshman Maggie Lyon, honored with All-Big Ten accolades. Lyon had a stellar first season at Northwestern as she became the first Wildcat to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Year accolades.
