Recap: Simply Stunning

In a word: shocking. No.11 Wisconsin shoots 34.8 percent from the floor, 3-for-28 from three-point range and allow Iowa to shoot 49.2 percent. All of it spelled doom for the Badgers, who lost their first conference home game since February 9, 2010, gave up over 65 points for the first time since March 6, 2011 and lost its first conference home opener under Bo Ryan.

Iowa 72, No.11 Wisconsin 65
