MADISON, Wis. — Fueled by a 16-3 run midway through the second half, the University of Iowa women’s basketball team dumped Wisconsin 65-56 on Thursday at the Kohl Center.

The Hawkeyes (13-4 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) received double-doubles from senior center Morgan Johnson  (23 points, 11 rebounds) and sophomore guard Samantha Logic (12 points, 10 rebounds). Once again Logic flirted with a triple double: she handed out nine assists.

Iowa has won eight of its last nine games, but last Sunday the Hawkeyes were knocked off at home by Michigan, 68-64. The Hawkeyes lead the Big Ten with 17.2 assists per game; Iowa had 17 more against Wisconsin, with a bulk coming from Logic.

The Hawkeyes have seven days before playing at Michigan State on Jan. 17.
