The Iowa Hawkeyes have begun mounting their comeback in the Big Ten standings after dropping four out of five games. Now Iowa has won back-to-back games for the first time in over a month. But if they want to get to three in a row and really put themselves in position for a double bye in the Big Ten Tournament, they’ll need to come away with a win tonight.
That may be easier said than done as the Hawkeyes are set to travel to #21 Wisconsin. The Badgers are fresh off a loss to #3 Michigan, but led for a good portion of that game. Now they look to make a run of their own with a big time win over the Hawkeyes.
