IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Luka Garza had 21 points and 18 rebounds and No. 18 Iowa rallied from a 12-point second-half deficit to beat Wisconsin 68-62 on Monday night.
The Hawkeyes (15-5, 6-3 Big Ten) trailed 57-45 with 7:13 to play before going on a 19-2 run. Joe Toussaint's layup and free throw with 1:20 to go gave Iowa a 60-59 lead, and the Hawkeyes did not trail again.
It was the 12th double-double of the season for Garza, who leads the Big Ten in scoring.
The Hawkeyes struggled with their shooting, going 20 for 60 from the field, including 3 of 20 on 3-pointers. But they game up with big plays in the closing minutes, including Fredrick's 3-pointer with 5:08 to go that cut Wisconsin's lead to 57-54.
The game was tied at 30 at halftime, but the Badgers opened the second half on an 18-8 run and kept control until Iowa's late burst.
