MADISON – Wisconsin coach Greg Gard and his players enjoyed a breather – finally. The Badgers, battling to secure the No. 4 seeding and a double-bye in the Big Ten tournament, moved closer to that goal with a surprisingly easy 65-45 victory over Iowa on Thursday night at the Kohl Center. With senior Ethan Happ contributing 21 points, 14 rebounds and three assists in his final home game, this was a butt-whipping of a rival. Two games separated the teams in the standings but the play on the court illustrated a gap of huge proportions.
