The Wisconsin Badgers will get a couple of extra days off, days they didn't want. The Badgers failed to hold a 7-point lead with six minutes left and lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes 61-57 in the Big Ten quarterfinals in Indianapolis. The Badgers (19-12) are now at the mercy of the NCAA selection committee.
The Badgers scored just 3 points in their final 11 possessions and went without a field goal in the final 6:01. The Buckeyes finished the game on a 14-3 run.
Buckeyes sophomore Evan Turner had 19 points to lead the Buckeyes. Trevon Hughes scored 15 to lead the Badgers. Ohio State faces Michigan State in tomorrow's Big Ten semifinals. The Badgers, who shot just 36% for the game, will now wait to find out their fate on selection Sunday.
