For the second time in two weeks, the Basketball Badger Men clobber Indiana. Thursday night they took care of Tom Crean’s Hoosiers 78-46. Wisconsin (21-7, 11-5) outscored Indiana (9-18, 3-12) by 60-points in the two contests this season.
All five starters for the Badgers finished in double-figures. Trevon Hughes led the charge with 17. In his third game back, Jon Leuer posted 13-points and 7-rebounds. Jason Bohannon made it three-straight games in double digits with 11.
Torch is the best word to describe what Wisconsin did to Indiana. The Badgers shot 54.7% from the field on 29 of 53 shooting. More impressively, the Badgers made 8 of 11 from behind the arc equating to a 72.7% stint. Wisconsin was also 80% from the charity stripe on 12 of 15 shooting. Indiana was 35.3% from the field, 0 for 5 from down town and made just half of their 20 foul shots.
The victory guarantees the Badgers will have off the first day of the Big Ten Tournament. Next up is Iowa at the Kohl Center for the final home game of the season Tuesday night.
