Iowa upsets the 11 ranked Badgers

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (KWWL) -

The Iowa Hawkeye men's basketball team is trying to bounce back Saturday afternoon after playing a tough Purdue team to the wire Wednesday night.

But Saturday's matchup wasn't any easier as they traveled to Madison taking on the 11th ranked Wisconsin badgers.

The Badgers haven't lost at the Kohl Center since February of 2010.

The Hawkeyes get out to a quick start on the break Devin Marble on the miss, but Melsahn Basabe was there to clean up the mess with a dunk. Iowa would jump out to an 8 point lead and go the break tied at 31.

In the second half Aaron White would bench and give the Hawkeyes a spark hitting two big three and a monster dunk as the Hawks hold on to upset the 11th ranked badgers 72-65.
