Fifth-ranked Iowa aims to continue its late-season run when it hosts No. 25 Wisconsin on Sunday in Big Ten play at Iowa City.
The Hawkeyes (19-7, 13-6 Big Ten) have won six of their past seven games and are closing in on the No. 3 seed and a double-bye in next week's Big Ten tournament at Indianapolis.
Wisconsin (16-10, 10-9) has been sliding in the other direction, with four losses in its past five games. The Badgers can't get higher than the No. 6 seed.
