Ferrell helps Hoosiers get past struggling Wisconsin 59-58

Posted:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell scored 19 points and O.G. Anunoby added 11 to lead Indiana past Wisconsin 59-58 on Tuesday.

The Hoosiers (13-3, 3-0 Big Ten) have won eight straight, beating the Badgers for only the second time since 2007.

Wisconsin (9-7, 1-2) was led by Bronson Koenig and Nigel Hayes who scored 15 points on a night full of offensive struggles. At one point in the second half, the Badgers went more than eight minutes without a basket -- and yet they still managed to hang around.

Indiana finally took the lead when Ferrell and Anunoby broke a 34-34 tie with back-to-back 3-pointers.

Wisconsin tied the score at 53 on two free throws from Hayes with 52.4 seconds to go.

Ferrell answered with a 13-foot jumper and sealed the win with four free throws in the final 13.7 seconds -- barely enough after Wisconsin hit a buzzer-beating 3.
