On Saturday night, the Iowa Hawkeyes pulled off a miraculous comeback victory over the Michigan State Spartans in a thrilling Big Ten matchup. The Hawkeyes trailed by as many as 18 points in the second half, but managed to claw their way back into the game and win it in the closing minutes.
The game was marked by an interesting moment in the second half when Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery stared down a referee after a questionable call. McCaffery, who has a reputation for being a fiery coach, was clearly unhappy with the call and let the referee know it. The moment was captured on camera and quickly went viral on social media.
But in the end, it was the Hawkeyes who had the last laugh. Led by guard Joe Wieskamp, Iowa managed to get back into the game and take the lead late. Wieskamp finished the game with 27 points and hit the go-ahead three-pointer with just seconds remaining in the game.
The win was a huge one for the Hawkeyes, who have been struggling for much of the season. The victory also showed that the team is capable of coming back from large deficits, something that could serve them well in the upcoming Big Ten tournament.
The Hawkeyes will now look to build on their momentum as they gear up for the Big Ten tournament. With a win like this, Iowa has shown that they can compete with anyone in the conference and that they should not be taken lightly.
