The Iowa women’s basketball team (17-12, 10-8) closed out its regular season with an 86-80 overtime win on Sunday against Wisconsin (20-9. 10-8) in Madison, Wis.

With the victory, the Hawkeyes secured the No. 3 seed and a first-round bye in this week’s Big Ten Tournament.

Sophomore Kamille Wahlin scored a game-high 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting. The sophomore also went four-for-eight from 3-point range.

Junior Kachine Alexander scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to record her 14th double-double of the season.

Sunday’s victory was Iowa’s first overtime win of the season. The Hawkeyes had been 0-2 in overtime games.

Iowa now awaits the outcome of Thursday’s Big Ten Tournament first-round matchup between sixth-seeded Penn State (16-12, 8-10) and 11th-seeded Minnesota (13-16, 6-12).

The Hawkeyes will face the winner of that game at approximately 1 p.m. on Friday. The Big Ten Network will televise all tournament matchups live until the championship game, which will be broadcast live on ESPN2 at 4:30 p.m. on March 7.
