Wisconsin 75, Iowa 71 - Final Score

Despite shooting just 37 percent from the field, No. 4 Wisconsin managed to erase an 11-point deficit to top No. 22 Iowa and get off to a 15-0 start for just the third time in school history. The only other Badger teams to win their first 15 games were the 1911-12 and 1913-14 clubs.

Ben Brust did not record a single point in the first half, but caught fire in the second. The senior guard went 5-of-6 from the field and 3-of-3 from beyond the arc to score 19 points and lead Wisconsin to a victory. Josh Gasser chipped in 14 points.

The Hawkeyes held a 35-24 advantage at the break, got a game-high 27 points from Roy Devyn Marble, dominated the Badgers on the glass (43-34) and grabbed 17 offensive rebounds. None of it mattered, though, thanks to Wisconsin's 10 three-pointers.

The Badgers are now one of five Big Ten Conference teams to start 2-0 in league play, while Iowa joins Minnesota in a tie for sixth place at 1-1.
