Jordan Bohannon's last three point shot had been an airball. The faithful in Madison had let him know about it too. So when he got the chance to shoot again, he wasn't sure he wanted to take the shot. Hawkeye fans are glad he did. Bohannon's made three with just over 2 seconds left lifted Iowa to a 59-57 over 22nd ranked Wisconsin. On a play that was set up for Peter Jok, Cordell Pensel got the rebound and hit Bohannon for the game winner.

 

Bohannon finished with 11 points on the night. Iowa improves to 17-13 overall and 9-8 in Big Ten play. They have a home game left versus Penn State. But will this all be enough to get these young Hawkeyes into the NCAA tournament? Many believe if you finish above .500 in the Big Ten, you deserve a birth. Iowa has quality wins versus Wisconsin, Maryland, Michigan, and Purdue. However, after back to back road wins against Maryland and Wisconsin, their RPI has only gone up 4 spots.

The way this Iowa team is playing they look like they don't care. Winning takes care of everything. Suddenly this Iowa team isn't looking towards the future. They're playing for right now.
