Quick thoughts on a 75-73 double overtime win over Wisconsin:

How it happened: This one had a little bit of everything. Runs. Lead changes. Poor shot selection by both teams at times down the stretch. And a great play to get the win by Indiana’s best player to snap a five-game losing streak. In a game that it seemed like might go on all night, Indiana found a way in double overtime. After Devonte Green fouled D’Mitrik Trice on a 3-point attempt with just under 10 seconds left, Trice sunk all three free throws and it looked like a triple overtime might follow. Wisconsin took a timeout after the third Trice free throw and Indiana put the ball into Langford’s hands. He went the length of the floor and hit a layup with .8 seconds left to lift the Hoosiers to victory.

Standout performer: Langford finished with 22 points in 45 minutes on 8-for-17 shooting from the field. Juwan Morgan also deserves a mention for his nine point, 15 rebound effort in 28 minutes before fouling out.

Statistics that stands out: Indiana’s defense stood strong as it limited Wisconsin to .94 points per possession and 39.1 percent shooting from the field.
