BLOOMINGTON, IN (WHBL) - The Wisconsin men's basketball team lost for the first time this season, 75-72 Tuesday night at Indiana. Yogi Ferrell scored 25 points for the Hoosiers, as they ended a 12-game losing streak to the Badgers which dated back to January of 2007. Third-ranked Wisconsin fell to 16-1, leaving Arizona, Syracuse, and Wichita State as the only unbeaten Division-One teams in the country. The game was tied at 65 when Ferrell scored five straight points. Wisconsin got to within one in the final minute on a Frank Kaminsky lay-up. Ferrell made a pair of throws, which gave Indiana a three-point edge with 18-point-one seconds left. The Badgers blew a chance to send the game to overtime when Traevon Jackson and Ben Brust missed three pointers in the final seconds. Jackson led Wisconsin with a career-high 21 points, and Brust had 13. Coach Bo Ryan said his Badgers seemed to worry about getting fouls due to the way the game was being called. Indiana made 7 of 10 free throws, while the Badgers only went to the line four times and made one. Indiana scored 52 of its 75 points in the paint, with a 31-26 rebounding edge. The Hoosiers improved to 2-2 in the Big Ten and 12-5 overall. The Badgers are now 3-1 in league play. They'll host Michigan on Saturday.
