An absolutely abominable first half for Wisconsin (13-5, 4-1 B1G) was to much to overcome, as the Badgers stumbled to their first Big Ten loss at the hands of Iowa (13-5, 2-3 B1G). The Hawkeyes took down the Badgers 70-66 in front of a lethal Carver-Hawkeye Arena crowd.
In the stat book, Wisconsin played a pretty even game with Iowa. The two teams oddly enough both shot 43.1% from the field, and the Badgers even shot better then the Hawkeyes from downtown!
The difference in the game? Turnovers. Wisconsin had 12 throw aways while the young Iowa squad had just six.
It really was a tale of two halfs, considering the Badgers outscored Iowa 48-36 in the 2nd. If it weren't for their awful offensive output in the first half, they would have won this game.
