Indiana owns its first outright Big Ten title since 1993. It’s
destined for a No. 1 seed when the NCAA tournament bracket comes out
But Wisconsin not only owns the Hoosiers, it has their number. When
the Badgers beat IU 68-56 in the semi-finals of the Big Ten tournament
on Saturday, it was their 12th straight victory in this series,
including two meetings this year.
Wisconsin (23-10) held Indiana (27-6), which averages 80.8 points a
game, second in the nation, to its lowest point total of the season.
The lowest came in a 67-58 home loss to Ohio State. The second lowest
came in IU’s 64-59 home loss to Wisconsin.
