Suffice to say, your scribe was not too bummed to be helping some friends move, and thus miss seeing large chunks of this game. As some might of guessed, the two games in two weeks had the Hawks coming out flat, as they fell behind Wisconsin 40-31 at the break. Probably the biggest factor was that Basabe was sick and could only play a minute, and that hurt the Hawkeyes interior D, not to mention he has been playing very well on the offensive zone of late.
