When Iowa took on Wisconsin on Jan.5 at the Kohl Center, the Hawkeyes blew a big lead that allowed the Badgers to steal a win and remain undefeated.
Happy New Year!
No, not the ushering in of 2014. Before the clock strikes midnight Wednesday morning, there's a different, brand-new year beginning: Big Ten basketball season.
If last week brought a Challenge, a true test in the form of annual match ups with the ACC, then this week brings the non-conference season's final exams.
There are only two teams in the top 25 with two losses.
And they just happen to be playing each other Tuesday night in the marquee game of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
The college basketball season is just 11 days old.
