Iowa basketball needed that win in a big way. The No. 6 Hawkeyes recently lost to No. 7 Maryland and fell to Indiana earlier in February. Now, Iowa heads into the B1G tournament with some much-needed momentum.
The tournament starts on March 1. Iowa (15-3 B1G) is slated to be the No. 2 seed behind Indiana, which still takes home the regular season title at 16-2.
