BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Ryan Evans had 13 points and seven rebounds, and Traevon Jackson added 11 points as Wisconsin upset No. 2 Indiana 64-59 on Tuesday night to take sole possession of the Big Ten Conference lead.
The Badgers (13-4, 4-0) have won seven straight and beaten two Top 15 opponents in four days. They have 11 consecutive wins over the Hoosiers and five in a row in Bloomington.
"It's huge, you know," Jackson said. "We'll celebrate for 24 hours and then we got to get ready for Iowa. Just got to get ready for another one."
Cody Zeller scored 18 of his 21 points in the first half to lead Indiana (15-2, 3-1), which had a six-game winning streak and an 18-game home winning streak end.
The Hoosiers finished with fewer than 60 points for the first time this season.
The Badgers, as usual, dictated the tempo by running down the shot clock and forcing the nation's highest-scoring team into a precious possession-by-possession slugfest where baskets were scarce.
It was the perfect recipe for Wisconsin, which committed only eight turnovers and took advantage of seemingly every opportunity it had, especially in the second half as the Hoosiers moaned and groaned about everything from missed shots to errant passes.
"They bait you with their drives and kicks," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. "In the second half, they made shots, and some of them reminded me of the Michael Jordan-Larry Bird McDonald's commercial."
St. John's 67, No. 20 Notre Dame 63 in New York JaKarr Sampson scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half, and the Red Storm handed the Fighting Irish their second straight loss.
The Red Storm (10-7, 2-3 Big East Conference), which had lost two straight and four of five, had a 12-point lead midway through the second half and, despite giving it all up, managed to score the game's final six points for the win, its third straight over the Fighting Irish.
"I told you expect the unexpected," St. John's coach Steve Lavin said of his roster that has only three upperclassmen. "Buckle up and enjoy the roller coaster ride ."
Eric Atkins scored a season-high 21 points for Notre Dame (14-3, 2-2), which used an 18-4 run to wipe out the double-digit deficit and take a 61-59 lead with 4:27 to play.
