The Iowa Hawkeyes are set to take the floor in Carver-Hawkeye Arena one final time this season to send off seniors Luka Garza and Jordan Bohannon. With Ohio State losing to Illinois on Saturday, the Hawkeyes enter their final game having already secured a double bye in the Big Ten Tournament. Now Iowa needs a win in their final regular season game to secure the third seed and avoid a potential semifinal showdown with conference champion Michigan.
That won’t come without a challenge as the Hawkeyes play host to #25 Wisconsin, who enters the matchup after losing five of their last six games. The Hawkeyes took round one in the series, but the Badgers come in hungry and seeking revenge. Can the Hawkeyes send Garza and Bohannon off with one final win, or will Wisconsin spoil the party and drop Iowa to the 4th seed in next week’s Big Ten Tournament?
