MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Sam Dekker scored 16 points and No. 14 Wisconsin shrugged off a slow start to beat Indiana 69-58 on Tuesday night.
The Hoosiers (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten) held Wisconsin (23-5, 10-5) to its lowest point production in the first half this season, taking a 29-19 lead.
But the Badgers, who shot just 26 percent in the first half, opened the second half by outscoring the Hoosiers 9-2 in a span of just over 3 minutes and then used a 22-5 run to put the game away.
Yogi Ferrell scored 21 points to lead Indiana, while freshman Noah Vonleh added 18.
Traevon Jackson scored 14 points for the Badgers, while Ben Brust added 12.
