Eyeing IU


IU trails Wisconsin at half

BLOOMINGTON – Indiana trails No. 3 Wisconsin 35-34 after the first half today at Assembly Hall.

The Hoosiers had to weather a great shooting start by the Badgers, and IU found success with its dribble penetration in the opening half.

Wisconsin connected on its first seven shots to build a 16-10 lead in the opening four minutes, but the Badgers cooled down and the Hoosiers were able to climb back into the game after falling behind 18-10 with 13:23 left in the first half.

IU went on an 8-0 run to tie it at 18 with 10:44 to play, but Wisconsin responded with a Josh Gasser layup and Traevon Jackson getting a steal to set up a Gasser 3 for a 23-18 lead over the next minute.

After the Hoosiers fell behind 27-22 with 7:28 left in the half, Will Sheehey took over by scoring six straight points, and IU pulled within 31-30 of Wisconsin with 3:05 left in the half after a layup from Hanner Mosquera-Perea.

IU had a chance to take a lead at the end of the half after Yogi Ferrell drew a charging foul on Gasser with 10 seconds left, but Ferrell missed his jumper with 2 seconds left as Wisconsin clung to a one-point lead at the break.

Sheehey leads IU with 8 points, and Noah Vonleh, Stanford Robinson and Ferrell each have 6.

Gasser leads Wisconsin with 9 points, and Ben Burst has 8.
