No. 4 Wisconsin beats No. 22 Iowa

MADISON, Wis. — Ben Brust scored 19 points and No. 4 Wisconsin remained unbeaten with a 75-71 victory over No. 22 Iowa on Sunday night.

Wisconsin (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten) matched the best start in school history, tying the 1911-12 and 1913-14 teams.

The game was physical at times, and Iowa coach Fran McCaffery was hit with two technical fouls almost 8 minutes into the second half after a foul was called on Gabriel Olaseni, sending Nigel Hayes to the line.

Brust hit all four free throws on the technicals for Wisconsin (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten), and Hayes made one of two on the personal foul.

That turned a 41-39 Iowa lead into 44-41 Wisconsin advantage. Hayes then scored on a drive to cap off a 12-2 run. Iowa would not lead the rest of the game.

Roy Marble led the Hawkeyes (12-3, 1-1) with 27 points.
