Here's what Mike Lucas had to say about Wisconsin's big win on Senior Night at the Kohl Center over Iowa on Thursday night 65-45.
"Smothering UW defense held Iowa to 45 pts (20 fewer than previous low; 31 under B10 season aver). Ethan Happ helped take Tyler Cook out of the gm early. Cook failed to score (0of6). Jordan Bohannon wasn’t a factor either. Had just 8pts (3of11) & Tied for team high. Speaks volumes"
"Khalil Iverson has aggressively impacted offense over last 5 games. Besides his defensive presence, a constant, his growing confidence is obvious in hunting shot. And it extends beyond dunks. Aleem Ford resurfacing with 9pts was also timely. Esp in 1stH when game was still close"
"In vintage Ethan Happ fashion, he completely took over the paint at the start of 2ndH. On back-to-back baskets he was relentless in rebounding own misses & scoring on putbacks. Hawks had no answer. Key Stat: UW was 17of27 from FT line; Iowa was season low 4of6. Happ was 11of18."
