The Badgers outscored the Wildcats 29-20 in the second half to pull away. Nate Reuvers paced a balanced Wisconsin scoring effort with 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting plus 3-of-3 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The underdog is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings. The road team is 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings.
The Hoosiers are 1-2 ATS in the last three meetings. Two of the last three meetings have gone over the total.
This is a huge opportunity for Indiana as it tries to make a convincing argument it is worthy of an NCAA Tournament bid. The Hoosiers have won their last two home games convincingly against Iowa and Penn State, so playing an opponent in that general ballpark shouldn't cause the Hoosiers to falter. The early start time should help for the hosts and it is a revenge game as it was blasted 84-64 by the Badgers all the way back on December 7. I'm taking the Hoosiers to make a statement here.
