DUNK L'ORANGE - Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports
Into the Badgers' den.
Good news: Iowa plays their second-toughest remaining road game tonight.
Bad news: This game is also one of Iowa's last realistic shots at something even approximating a signature win in conference play (barring a shocking upset of Indiana in Bloomington).
Whether or not Iowa absolutely needs a win like that to make the NCAA Tournament is TBD, but... it sure wouldn't hurt, you know? Iowa has enjoyed a lot of success against the Badgers of late -- three straight wins -- and their game against the Badgers in Iowa City might have been the finest game they've played during the conference season (give or take the last 5-10 minutes, anyway). Iowa can play with Wisconsin. Iowa can beat Wisconsin. They just need to show that they can do it again tonight, in the face of thousands of cheese curd-laden fans.
The game is on BTN at 8pm CT.
The usual rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no religion, no politics, no slurs, etc.
Go Hawks. Beat the Badgers.
