The Iowa Hawkeyes are at home in Big Ten action to take on eighth rated Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes are 4-6 in the league race after downing Ohio State and take on a Badger team that is 8-1 in the league race and 17-3 overall.
Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says the Badgers as good as everybody says, they space the floor very well on offense and go to the free throw line as much as anybody in the league. He says Wisconsin will test your patience on the defensive end. Lickliter says you have to maintain your concentration and your focus and see who will break first.
Lickliter says the Badgers will take a quick shot if they get the opportunity, so he says his team really has to get back on defense and guard as long as it takes. Iowa is 11-12 overall and because the Iowa City area has been hit with heavy snow, officials are offering U-of-I students free admission to the contest. The Hawks are 11-12 overall.
