Frank Kaminsky had 21 points and a crucial late steal as No. 16 Wisconsin beat No. 15 Iowa 79-74 on Saturday for its fifth straight win.

Sam Dekker added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Badgers (22-5, 9-5 Big Ten), who swept the season series and moved a half-game ahead of the Hawkeyes (19-7, 8-5) in the Big Ten standings.

Josh Oglesby's jumper with 1:01 left put Iowa up 72-71, but Kaminsky answered with a bank shot that gave Wisconsin a one-point lead. Kaminsky then stripped Iowa's Roy Devyn Marble under the basket and hit two free throws as the Badgers went up 75-72 with 24.5 seconds left.

Marble had 21 points and 11 assists to lead the Hawkeyes, who lost their third home game in four tries.
