IOWA def. #16/15 WISCONSIN, 67-66
So maybe the game ball goes to Roy Devyn Marble, he of 11 points, eight assists, and a pair of steals.
Maybe the game ball goes to Aaron White, the gritty and talented freshman who scored 12 and grabbed six rebounds, including a big one in the game's waning moments.
Maybe the game ball goes to Fran McCaffery, Iowa's second-year head coach who has guided Iowa to four wins over a Top 25 team thus far in 2011-12 and the Hawkeyes to their first sweep of the Wisconsin Badgers since the 1994-95 college basketball season.
No, the aforementioned are all great choices, but the recipient of the game ball for Iowa's 67-66 victory over No. 15 Wisconsin Thursday night on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena - Iowa's second straight win over a nationally ranked Big Ten Conference opponent - is an easier choice: Matt Gatens.
