Big road test for Iowa basketball on Sunday

No. 22 Iowa is about to find out where it stands in its bid for a Big Ten title.

Iowa (12-2, 1-0 Big Ten) will open road play in the Big Ten on Sunday against No. 4 Wisconsin, one of the hottest teams in the country.

The Badgers are 14-0, and on Thursday they raced out to a 40-14 halftime lead in a blowout win at Northwestern.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says playing the Badgers on the road will help the Hawkeyes truly evaluate themselves at this point in the season.
