(BLOOMINGTON, Ind.) — Wisconsin simply has Indiana’s number.
The Badgers upset second-ranked Indiana 64-59 on Tuesday night for their eleventh straight victory over the Hoosiers.
Wisconsin took sole possession of first place in the Big Ten with the win, and have won seven in a row overall.
After trailing by one at halftime, the Badgers slowed down the tempo and held Indiana to 37 percent shooting for the contest. They also managed to shut down Hoosier forward Cody Zeller, who had 21 points but only three in the second half.
Ryan Evans had 13 points and seven rebounds to lead the Badgers (13-4), while Traevon Jackson added 11.
“It’s huge you know,” Jackson said. “We’ll celebrate for 24 hours and then we got to get ready for Iowa. Just got to get ready for another one.”
Indiana (15-2) saw their 18 game home winning streak come to an end.
