For the first time in the program’s history the Iowa basketball team has lost 20 games in a season. It was no contest in Madison as the Hawkeyes were crushed by 15th ranked Wisconsin 67-40.
Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says you can’t hurry up against the team. He says they panicked when they got behind and says they could not afford to fall behind early. He says they are like Northwestern, if you get down, you are in “big trouble.”
Iowa closes out the regular season at Minnesota on Sunday and Lickliter complained about the schedule, again. Lickliter says there’s no other team that is finishing with two senior nights on the road. He says they can’t get caught up in the score and things you can’t control.
Iowa is 10-20 overall and 4-13 in the Big Ten.
