Hawks lose to #13 Wisconsin 62-59 in overtime

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- Jon Leuer scored 19 points, Jordan Taylor added 16 and 13th-ranked Wisconsin held off Iowa 62-59 in overtime Wednesday night for its sixth win in seven games.

Keaton Nankivil added 10 points for the Badgers, who tuned up for their showdown with top-ranked Ohio State on Saturday by barely surviving a road test against the Big Ten's last place team.

Wisconsin's Tim Jarmusz hit a 3 and Leuer followed with a jumper to give the Badgers (18-5, 8-3 Big Ten) a 61-57 lead with 51 seconds left.

Bryce Cartwright answered with a jumper for Iowa, but Wisconsin wisely called timeout on a loose ball with 8.7 seconds to go.

Taylor was then fouled after appearing to lose the inbound pass. He hit a free throw, and Cartwright missed a 3 at the buzzer.

Cartwright had 14 points to lead Iowa while Melsahn Basabe added 13 points and 11 rebounds.  The Hawks (10-14, 3-9) were seeking its first three-game winning streak in the Big Ten in four years.
