Hawkeye's Mens Basketball Team Sweeps Wisconsin

For the first time since 1995, the Hawkeye Men's Basketball team swept the Wisconsin Badgers. Tonight it was a 67-66 victory in Carver Hawkeye Arena. Senior Matt Gatens led the way with 33 points.

Tonight's game the Iowa Student population was allowed access for free, and they turned out. Sections reserved for the undergraduates were filled to the top row, reminiscent to the times of Dr. Tom Davis and his teams in the late 80s and 90s. Following the win, students rushed the court celebrating the upset of the #15 team in the country.

The Hawkeyes have one more regular season at home. I look for them to turn out as well as they did today celebrating the heralded career of all in the Senior Class.
