When last we saw our intrepid heroes, the Hawkeyes were faltering against Penn State in the barren wasteland known as the Bryce Jordan Center. They've had a week off since that loss to recharge and refocus for the closing stretch of the regular season. Four games left and the objective is clear: win out and Iowa brings home a Big Ten championship for the first time in decades. The first step to that objective? Beat Wisconsin. This looked a potential rout for the good guys a few months ago, when Iowa was flying high and the Badgers were lost and confused, but Iowa's pace has slowed down while the Badgers have improved quite a bit over the last six weeks or so. So this could again be a tense game.
Iowa's lost five in a row against Wisconsin; they last beat the Badgers in 2013, a 70-66 win in Iowa City. It's time to end that streak -- and keep pace in the race for the Big Ten title.
The game tips off at 8 PM, with TV coverage from BTN and online coverage from BTN2Go.
