Film Session: Beating the Wisconsin defense
After a strong Wisconsin start to the second half, Indiana found itself down eight with 11 minutes and change remaining in the ballgame. Yogi Ferrell and Noah Vonleh hadn’t seen the court in a few minutes.
But while the Hoosiers usually struggles to score with them out, they were able to pump in some quick baskets against Wisconsin’s lacking D and get some stops of their own during a crucial stretch of the game. When Ferrell and Vonleh re-entered at the 10:24 mark, Indiana trailed by four — 52-48.
Just a minute and half of game time later, the Hoosiers were up 54-52 and would go back and forth with Wisconsin before securing victory.
