MADISON, Wis — Indiana almost pulled it off Thursday. Almost beat #8 Wisconsin on the Badgers home floor. Almost won for the first time since 1998 at the Kohl Center.
Instead, the Hoosiers headed back to Bloomington following an 80-73 double-overtime loss.
Indiana clawed its way back in this one. Down by as many as 12 points in the first half and trailing by five at halftime.
With seven minutes left, the Hoosiers went up by a game-high six points. But D'Mitrik Trice hit a jumper with 22 seconds remaining to send the game into the first overtime.
Five minutes later, Trice did it again. His jumper with 12 seconds to go tied the score and moved the game into a second overtime.
That's when the Badgers took over, outscoring IU 11-4 over the final five minutes for the 80-73 win.
Trice finished with 21 points for Wisconsin which is now 10-2 and 4-1 in Big Ten play. The Hoosiers got 23 points and 12 rebounds from Trayce Jackson-Davis.
Indiana has lost 18 straight games in Madison and is now 7-5 overall and 2-3 in the conference.
