BLOOMINGTON, IN - Ryan Evans had 13 points and seven rebounds, and Traevon Jackson added 11 points as Wisconsin upset No. 2 Indiana 64-59 on Tuesday night to take sole possession of the Big Ten lead.

The Badgers (13-4, 4-0) have won seven straight and beaten two Top 15 opponents in four days. They now have 11 straight wins over the Hoosiers and five straight in Bloomington.

Cody Zeller scored 18 of his 21 points in the first half to lead Indiana (15-2, 3-1), which had a six-game winning streak and an 18-game home winning streak both end.

The Badgers took control early in the second half with runs of 7-0 and 9-0 and led by as much 51-41 with about 10 minutes to play.

Indiana charged back with a 10-1 run to close to 52-51.

But the Badgers closed it out with a 12-8 run to end the game.
