The Iowa men's NCAA Tournament stock is falling, after the Hawkeyes lost another home game to a ranked opponent, falling to 16th ranked Wisconsin 79-74.
The setback drops the Hawkeyes to fourth in the Big Ten standings with an 8-5 record.
It's also the teams third home loss in four games.
The Hawkeyes were down nine at half, but held a one point lead with a minute to play before the Badgers took over down the stretch.
Entering Saturday, the Black and gold were a game back of a possible crown, but now the hope for a regular season title is a distant one.
"Wisconsin has the ability to spread the floor and they also have guys that can take you one-on-one," sophomore Mike Gesell said. "I don't think we did a good job guarding our man and then rotating out of it."
Iowa has tough road games ahead as they try to rebound. The Hawkeyes are at Minnesota on Tuesday and head back to Indiana to make up last week's game, which was postponed after a piece of roofing fell from Assembly Hall.
