IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Aaron White scored 17 points and Iowa hung on to beat Wisconsin 70-66 on Saturday night, knocking the Badgers out of first place in the Big Ten. Devyn Marble added 13 for the Hawkeyes, which picked up their biggest win of the season on the 20th anniversary of the death of former player Chris Street.
Iowa (13-5, 2-3 Big Ten) jumped ahead by 20 points late in the first half and held off a late charge by the Badgers (13-5, 4-1), which beat second-ranked Indiana 64-59 on Tuesday. George Marshall had 20 points, all in the second half, but the Badgers became the last Big Ten team to lose a league game. Wisconsin fell a half of a game behind Michigan State in the standings with the loss.
