Welcome to Hawkeye Carver Arena in Iowa City, Iowa for tonight's Big Ten showdown between the   Badgers and the Hawkeyes!
6:48
I've decided to start the live blog a little early tonight since there is a lot to discuss.
6:49
First off, there is news on the Badgers sideline. Kevin Gullikson will be making his first career start in place of Keaton Nankivil. Coach Ryan isn't known to change his lineup much, but hopefully this mark will spark both Keaton and Kevin.
6:50
The natural question is why doesn't Jon Leuer move into the lineup? Granted he is averaging  over 10 points a game and would seem to be the logical choice, but you can't underestimate the value of having a steady scorer on the bench. Putting Leuer in the starting lineup leaves the bench a little thin in terms of reliable scorers.
6:51
So the Badgers will go with Marcus Landry, Joe Krabbenhoft, Kevin Gullikson, Jason Bohannon and Trevon  Hughes tonight.
6:55
On the Iowa bench there is news tonight as well. The Hawkeyes will be without a pair of starters for this game. Starting big-man Cyrus Tate will miss his third straight game with  an ankle injury. He was on the floor working out about 15 minutes ago, but we are not expected to see him play. He'll be  missed as he is the team's leading rebounder.
6:56
To make matters worse for the Hawks, freshman guard Anthony Tucker was ruled academically ineligible prior to tonight's game. Tucker was averaging over 10 points a game, second-highest on the team. Losing those two guys leaves an already young and somewhat thin team even thinner.
6:58
We're still over a half hour away from tip-off, so this seems like a good time to make a trip to the snack bar. Iowa gives "working press and staff" coupons the concession booths, so............. see ya in a bit.
7:32
Ok... we're back and ready for action. The national anthem is over and the starting lineups are underway. We'll be off in moments.
7:33
Pretty small crowd for tonight's game. The student section is a little over half full (and it's bring a friend for free night) and the rest of the crowd is less than half full.
7:37
Wisconsin wins the tip and goes into offense. Jason Bohannon gets it and gets booed loudly by the students.
7:38
Kevin Gullikson lays it in on the first possession for two! Instant offense... boy that Bo Ryan is a smart coach.

Iowa answers with a lay-in... but I'm still smarting from the Gullikson bucket.
7:38
Krabby knocks down a jumper late in the shot clock... UW up 4-2.
7:39
Iowa answers with a 3-pointer. Iowa leads 5-4.
7:39
Landry kicks to J-Bo, who misses a three, but Marcus rebounds. UW resets.
7:40
Trevon gets into the scoring action early with a duece. UW up 6-5 now, 16:35 left.
7:40

Iowa misses around the rim and Kevin rebounds. Huge night for Gullikson!

7:41
Joe works down low, scores and draws a foul! He makes it a 3-point play with the FT. UW up 9-5.
7:42
A foul on Krabby sends Gatens to the line. Gatens is a freshmen from the Iowa City area who leads them in scoring. He misses both FTs though.
7:42
Leuer in for Krabby now, Keaton in for Kevin  and Taylor in for Hughes
7:43
UW struggles to get a shot off before the clock goes off and has to settle for a 20-foot jumper from Nankivil and it misses short. Shot clock violation brings us to the media timeout.
7:43
Wisconsin 9
Iowa 5

7:44
Wow... how about this scoring update from around the Big Ten...

Northwestern wins AT Michigan State, 70-63! Unreal.

bo ryan for the next obama
7:44
Campaign 20121?!?
7:45
Make that 2012!?!?
7:45
Running mate Joe Krabbenhoft? Secretary of defense, Michael Flowers?
7:46
Iowa comes out of the timeout with a quick two by Palmer.
7:46
J-Bo finds Nankivil down low with a nice feed and Keaton lays it in for two. UW up 4.
7:47
Gatens responds with a 3-pointer from the top to cut it back to a one-point game.

Jarmusz misses but Leuer rebounds and misses, then Hughes rebounds and gets fouled going back up. Good sign if UW can dominate the glass.
7:49
Hughes gets one of two free throws, UW by 2 now.
7:49
Landry picks up a foul on defense, Iowa to in-bound. Now Hughes gets whistled for a foul away from the ball. 3 team fouls on UW.

[Comment From paul]
has the stadium filled since game time?
7:53
Not much... it's pretty empty behind the baskets. The sides have filled in ok. This place seats 15,000 and I'd say we have 9,000 with us tonight.
7:53
[Comment From apache jct badger]
don't you love the way bo can take a struggling team from one week  and attempt a unique player substitution as a solution the next
7:53

No doubt... he's one of the best in the game.

7:54
J-Bo, Leuer, Landry, Krabby and Hughes on the floor now.
7:54
Landry banks in a turn-around jumper... tough shot to defend. This could be a big night for Mr. Landry.
7:55
Iowa misses and UW rebounds. Wisconsin works in the front court, but a back-court violation is called when Landry's pass sails away across midcourt.
7:56

Palmer sinks a short jumper for Iowa and then the Hawks rebound a UW miss.

7:56
Palmer gets a little excited and launches a deep three... no good. But UW turns it back over and Iowa slows it down.
7:57
Palmer puts back an Iowa miss and we're tied again at 16-16.
7:58
J-Bo turns it over trying to drive and kick and that leads to a runout basket from Gatens. Iowa has its first lead and Bo wants no  part. Timeout Wisconsin.
7:58
[Comment From claude]
seems like Wisconsin is just not clicking....Chemistry problem??
7:58
Chemistry is definitely not the problem. This is a close team and the guys really do like each other. Most live together in fact.
7:59
Gullikson, Taylor, Landry, Krabbenhoft and Hughes on the floor for UW now.
8:01
Taylor gets the offense started when he and Hughes are in together. Taylor draws back-to-back hand-check fouls on Aaron Fuller. Media TO.
8:01
Wisconsin 16
Iowa 18

7:53 left
8:02
Hughes drains a deep two and we're tied up again. Hughes and Krabby each have 5 points for UW.
8:03
Taylor picks up a non-shooting foul. Iowa scores off the in-bound play though (Palmer).
8:03
UW draws Iowa's 6th team foul and will reset.
8:04
Hughes misses in and out on a deep 3-pointer from the top. Iowa boards.
8:05
Landry gets it back by drawing a charge on Peterson of Iowa. He set his feet outside the 3-point arc and Peterson pushed off on the dribble. UW ball.
8:05
Booing of J-Bo continues.
8:06
Joe K with a nifty drop-step into the lane and bucket. UW ties it up at 20-20 with 5:30 left in the 1st half.
8:06
Gatens rims out from the corner and Krabby rebounds. Hughes dribbles past his man and lays it in. Great first step left the defender in the dust.
8:07
Ball goes in low to Cole for Iowa and Gullikson fouls him early before he can get the shot off. Nice play to keep him off the line. 5 team fouls on UW now.
8:07
Wilson, Leuer, Keaton, Joe and J-Bo on the floor.
8:08

Bawinkel misses a 3-pointer from the top and J-Bo brings it up the floor.

8:09
Jarmusz enters for Joe. J-Bo hits a loooong two just before the shot clock expires and UW leads by 4. That's the best way to quiet the boos (or make them louder!)
8:10
Wilson steals it and it's a run-out for UW. Wilson passes to J-Bo and he gets it blocked off the backboard. It looked like a clean block, but it wasn't clean that he knocked J-Bo into the basket standard. Refs never seem to watch the body contact on those plays.
8:10
Media timeout

Iowa 20

8:12
UW ball out of the timeout and Leuer misses a 3 from the wing. Iowa ball.
8:13

Gatens misses a runner for Iowa and a scramble for the ball ends in a tie-up. Iowa will retain possession. Crowd wanted a foul.

8:13
[Comment From scott]
maybe they should say J-Boooooooo in stead of the booo strategie.
8:13
That's what I'm yelling.
8:14
Krabby rebounds an Iowa missed 3. Leuer to Landry in the post. He backs down Gatens, but Gatens blocks his turnaround. Nice play.

8:17
Hughes misses short and Iowa secures the rebound. The Hawks call timeout and Wisconsin clings to a 4-point lead with 26.9 left in the half.

8:22
There you go Rhonda from Rhinelander... ask and ye shall recieve. This is a shot of the "nice" part of our locker room.
8:26

8:26
Here is the "not as nice" part.  
8:29

A look at the halftime stats...

Wisconsin is led by 7 points from Krabbenhoft and Hughes. Iowa is paced by 8 from David Palmer.

8:31
Wisconsin shot 47.8 percent to Iowa's 39.1 percent.
Wisconsin out-rebounded Iowa 16-12
Turnovers are 4 apiece
8:35
Ok second half is underway and Landry scores on the first play. UW by 6 now.
8:35
Palmer answers with a 3-pointer from the corner for Iowa... not sure how he got so wide open.
8:36
Gatens picks up his 1st foul. UW keeps the ball but misses.
8:37
Peterson draws a foul on Landry driving to the rim. He hits one of two at the line. UW by two now, 26-24.
8:38

Hughes called for a questionable walk, but Krabby rebounds an Iowa miss at the other end. Gullikson made that a tough shot.

8:39
Landry can't get the 12-foot jumper to go and Iowa comes back down.
8:40
Fuller misses a 3, but Gatens rebounds and runs more clock. Then Hughes is called for his second personal foul. Coach Ryan disagrees.
8:40

Leuer lost his man Palmer down low and he scores to tie the game at 26-26.

8:41
Hughes loses the ball and Iowa comes away with the steal. Peterson drives to the rim and Leuer is forced to foul on the shot. Basket is no good, but he'll shoot two.
8:41
Wisconsin 26
Iowa 26

15:32
8:42
I thought this might be one of those "first team to 40 points wins" games. So far, that's looking pretty close. It doesn't matter how it's done, as long as UW comes away on the left hand side as Coach Ryan says.
8:44
Peterson gives Iowa the lead, 28-26,  with both FTs. 
8:45
Nifty drive and score from Jordan Taylor. He went high off the glass to make that one. Nice play and we're tied at 28.
8:45
Gatens misses, but Taylor is called for the foul going for the board. Team foul number 4 on UW, Iowa has one this half.
8:46
Palmer isn't shy from long range... he misses a three well shot. OB to UW.
8:46
J-Bo comes off a high screen and nails a 3-pionter from the top of the arc. UW by 3 now.
8:47
Iowa misses and Leuer with a dunk on a nice feed down low!
8:47
Palmer can't buy an inside bucket, UW loses it back to Iowa.
8:48
J-Bo draws a charge on a whip-away by Jake Kelly. The crowd goes nuts on that one... not happy with the call. Third charge the Badgers have drawn tonight.... that will please the ball coach.
8:49

Krabby can't get a jump-hook from the baseline to go and Iowa is called for a foul going for the board. I thought the crowd was upset at the charge!?!?! Now they're out-of-their seats mad. Hopping mad if you will.

8:50
[Comment From Debbie from Delafield]
Who are the Badgers that should be considered for All-Big Ten honors? Will Leur be one?
8:51
I think Landry has a decent shot at first-team. He's 5th in the league in scoring during conference games. Leuer is probably an honorable mention choice at this point, but he's got to be a front-runner for 6th man of the Year right now.
8:52
[Comment From Bev from Burlington]
The announcers keep saying this is a 'border battle'. Do the Badgers feel that way? I thought the Border Battle was with Minnesota.
8:52
I guess it's a rivalry to some extent. Bo Ryan doesn't really get too hyped for rivalry games though. It's not a big deal in the locker room.
8:53
Keaton drains a deep two and UW has it's biggest lead at 7 points. Media Timeout.
8:53
Wisconsin 35
Iowa 28

11:45 left in the game
8:53
[Comment From Karie]
How many fouls do each team have?
8:53
Team fouls are UW=5 and Iowa=4 this half.
8:55
Pretty much  a back to basics game tonight. Both teams going exclusively man-to-man defense and no full-court pressure.
8:56
Gatens gets fouled by Krabby on a 15-foot jumper. That's Krabby's 3rd foul. He'll exit. Gatens hits both FTs. UW up 35-30.
8:57
Gullikson misses from point-blank range, but Keaton rebounds. Over to Landry for a missed 3-pointer. Missed a chance there.
8:57
Fuller misfires from the corner and the ball goes over the backboard. UW ball.
8:58
Taylor with a nice feed to Kevin down low, but Gullikson gets called for traveling after hopping a bit from contact.
8:58

Jake Kelly makes it a one-possession game again with a runner in the lane. Bo wants to talk things over with a 30-second timeout.

9:00
Hi-low from Gullikson to Keaton for a nice jump hook in the lane. Keaton has 6 now.
