Ryan Evans had 13 points and eight rebounds, and Traevon Jackson added 11 points as Wisconsin upset No. 2 Indiana, 64-59, Tuesday night in Bloomington, Ind.

The Badgers (13-4, 4-0 Big Ten) have won seven straight and beaten two Top 15 opponents in four days. They now have 11 straight wins over the Hoosiers (15-2, 3-1) and five straight in Bloomington.

The Badgers, as usual, dictated the tempo by running down the shot clock and forcing the nation’s highest-scoring team into a precious possession-by-possession slugfest in which baskets were scarce.


Wisconsin scored 7 straight points to take a 38-37 lead with 15:58 to play, then got a 3-point play from Jackson to start a 9-0 run.
