No. 14 Wisconsin beats Indiana 69-58Submitted: 02/25/2014
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Sam Dekker scored 16 points and No. 14 Wisconsin shrugged off a slow start to beat Indiana 69-58 on Tuesday night.

The Hoosiers (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten) held Wisconsin (23-5, 10-5) to its lowest point production in the first half this season, taking a 29-19 lead.

But Wisconsin outscored Indiana 9-2 over the first 3 minutes of the second half as the shots started to fall. The Badgers shot 26 percent in the first half, they hit 62 percent of their shots in the second. They went 6 of 11 from the 3-point line after making just 1 of 10 in the first half.


For Indiana, it was another blown double-digit lead. This one was more of a slow burn compared to losing to Penn State at home two weeks ago after leading by 12 points with just over 3 minutes to go.

Traevon Jackson scored 14 points for the Badgers, Ben Brust added 12, Josh Gasser 11 and Frank Kaminsky had 10 to go along with nine rebounds.
