Indiana vs. Wisconsin Recap: Badgers Take Down No. 2

And take over No. 1 in the Big Ten.

Score: Wisconsin 64, No. 2 Indiana 59

Star(s):Wisconsin:Ryan Evans 13 Pts, 8 Reb, 2 Ast. Indiana:Cody Zeller 23 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Stl.

Story: Taking down No. 2 on the road seems like a huge accomplishment. But this is the fifth straight win for the Badgers over the Hoosiers in Bloomington. It's also the seventh straight win for Wisconsin since dropping a road contest to Marquette in early December. Indiana meanwhile drops into a five-way tie for second place in the Big Ten, for the moment.

The game itself was tightly contested, with the Hoosiers taking a slim one-point lead into the break. A 9-0 run early in the second half fueled by Traevon Jackson's hot hand gave the Badgers a 47-39 advantage with just under 12 minutes to play. While Wisconsin would eventually pull to within one several times, it never got the lead back. Jordan Hulls and Cody Zeller simply missed too many shots down the stretch. 

Highlight of the Night: This dunk by Jared Berggren - no question.
