The Iowa Hawkeye women saw a 21 point second half lead trimmed to eight but they held on for a 61-51 victory over Wisconsin in Iowa City.
Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says they have to correct problems like too many turnovers and missed free throws. Bluder says after an 0-2 start in conference play it was a much-needed victory for her team. She says they now have to go on the road for two games at Minnesota and Michigan, so a victory was important at home.
Iowa is now 8-6 on the season.
