58

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Wisconsin won the 2014 Big Ten Tournament Championship on the strength of a Kinley McNicoll goal in the 104th minute of double overtime that lifted the Badgers past Iowa on Sunday at the Boilermaker Soccer Complex.

The No. 11 Badgers (18-2-2) and Hawkeyes played more than 100 minutes of scoreless soccer before McNicoll helped Wisconsin finally break through and claim the program’s third Big Ten tournament title and first since 2005.

McNicoll was named the 2014 Big Ten Tournament Offensive MVP, while UW goalkeeper Genevieve Richard earned defensive tournament MVP honors. Cara Walls was also named to the all-tournament team.
