MADISON, Wis. -- Nigel Hayes scored 31 points, Ethan Happ added 25 and Wisconsin snapped No. 19 Indiana's 12-game winning streak with an 82-79 victory in overtime on Tuesday night.

The Badgers (12-9, 4-4 Big Ten) missed several chances in the closing minutes of overtime to put the game out of reach after Bronson Koenig and Jordan Hill each went 1 of 2 at the free throw line.

Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell's 3 with 5 seconds left pulled the Hoosiers within 80-79 before Hayes stretched the lead back to three with two free throws.

Indiana (17-4, 7-1) never had a chance to give Ferrell one last shot to tie after Hayes tipped away OG Anunoby's inbounds pass as time expired.

Ferrell finished with 30 points on 12-of-20 shooting. He was 5 of 6 from 3-point range.
