With three starters in foul trouble, Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor took matters
into his own hands and led the 10th ranked Badgers to a 77-67 Big Ten road win over the Indiana Hoosiers in Bloomington.
Taylor scored a career high 39 points and he accounted for all 14 points during a key 14-4 run midway through the second half as the Badgers increased their lead to 60-49.
Taylor went 11 for 19 from the field, including 7 of 8 from three-point range. He also made all 10 of his free throw attempts. As a team, the Badgers converted 20 of 22 free throws (90%). On the season, Wisconsin is the best in the Big Ten Conference at 83%.
The Badgers have won eight straight against Indiana, their longest winning streak in the series since an 11-game run from 1912 to 1919. Wisconsin (23-6) has won four straight overall, heading into Sunday’s regular season finale at top ranked Ohio State.
