The Iowa Hawkeyes lost at Wisconsin 69-52 in Big Ten action. A big reason was 14 Hawkeye turnovers that led to 29 Badger points.
Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says you can’t guard Wisconsin when you turn it over like that. Wisconsin outscored the Hawks 9-0 in the final two minutes of the opening half to build a 12 point lead at the break.
It was a stretch that included three Iowa turnovers and a technical foul against Matt Gatens. Lickliter says they tried to keep the Badgers from getting on runs, but they created the run for them and it was hard to recover.
Iowa falls to 3-9 in the Big Ten. Lickliter says you have to get sick of losing and then realize you win by "hitting singles" and scoring possession by possession.
