Taylor's career high leads #18 Badgers past Indiana 69-60


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jordan Taylor scored a career-high 28 points to lead No. 18 Wisconsin to a 69-60 victory over Indiana on Thursday night for the Badgers' 14th straight win in the Kohl Center.

It was the best performance of Taylor's career at Wisconsin (14-4, 4-2 Big Ten) and came just five days after he had a 22-point outburst in a win over then-No. 16 Illinois.

Taylor and Jon Leuer, who finished with 20 points for his 25th straight game in double figures, were the only offense early for Wisconsin. The Badgers had to rally from a second-half deficit and trailed for most of the first 27 minutes.

Indiana (10-9, 1-5) got 16 points from Jordan Hulls in the Hoosiers' first game without Maurice Creek, who sustained a stress fracture in his right knee in Saturday's win over Michigan.
