@SASHASCHMID ON END OF REGULAR SEASON
“We want to attack these final two matches with energy and spirit. It’s exciting to have two great opponents on the final weekend of the regular season. It should be a great test for us on both Saturday and Sunday.”
TAKING ON THE BADGERS

With two wins this weekend, Iowa would cement its place in next weekend’s Big Ten Conference Tournament in Omaha, Nebraska.
