The Iowa Hawkeyes finally got back in the winning column on Wednesday evening as they took down #25 Rutgers 79-66. Now they hit the road again for a matchup with the only other team they’ve beaten in February: Michigan State. In their first matchup, Iowa struggled at times but came away victorious 84-78 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
