IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Aaron White led a balanced effort with 19 points and Iowa beat Nebraska 74-60 in its regular-season finale on Saturday, finishing at .500 in the Big Ten for the first time in six years.

Freshman Adam Woodbury had 12 points for the Hawkeyes (20-11, 9-9), who clinched the No. 6 seed in next week's Big Ten tournament.

Iowa, which broke the game open with a 20-2 run midway through the second half, will open conference tourney play against Northwestern on Thursday.

Ray Gallegos had 22 points for Nebraska (14-17, 5-13), which will be the No. 10 seed for the league tournament.

Iowa's Devyn Marble scored his 1,000th point on Saturday, joining his father Roy Marble as the only father/son duo in Big Ten history to do so.
