Before tonight, Iowa was 2-17 all time against ranked Wisconsin teams. 

With four-and-a-half minutes left to play, it looked like the Hawkeyes would fall yet again, as No. 22 Wisconsin held a 54-45 lead. But Iowa worked its way back, slowly, methodically until, with the shot clock turned off and the ball in their possession, the Hawkeyes trailed by just one point. 

With seconds left on the clock, the Big Ten's leading scorer, Peter Jok, pulled up from the free throw line, but his jumper clanked off the back iron. Wisconsin's Nigel Hayes mistimed his jump, the ball fell back into Iowa's hands, and then this happened:

Jordan Bohannon drained a three, Wisconsin's Bronson Koenig missed a potentail game-tying shot, Iowa came up with another huge rebound, and the game was over.

With the loss, the Badgers tied the single-season record for most consecutive losses by a ranked team against an unranked team.
