Wisconsin basketball social media angry after crushing overtime loss to Iowa

Wisconsin basketball just dropped another gut-wrenching game, this one on the road at Iowa.

The loss drops the Badgers to 17-9 on the season and 9-6 in Big Ten play. Not only is the Big Ten title out of the equation, but the team’s NCAA Tournament seed is slipping by the day.

The loss is crushing for several reasons. First, it seemed as if the Badgers had turned a corner with the win over Ohio State. Second, it came on a last-second basket in overtime. Wisconsin had numerous chances to escape Iowa City with a win, and the team couldn’t get it done.

It’s safe to say Wisconsin basketball social media is unhappy after the team’s latest loss:
