The Wisconsin Badgers (8-1, 1-0 B1G) rally from a 22-point deficit to beat the Indiana Hoosiers (7-2, 1-1 B1G), 64-59, inside the Kohl Center. Badgers to cover the 4 1/2 point spread was never in doubt!
The 22-point comeback win is tied for the largest come from behind win, which happened in 1976! This Wisconsin basketball squad is special.
Indiana still hasn’t beaten Wisconsin in Madison since 1998.
Wisconsin deserves a ton of credit. But what a choke job by Indiana.
This was the Chris Vogt game. Vogt scored a season-high nine points on 4-of-6 from the field, grabbed six big rebounds and had one big assist.
Johnny Davis continues to amaze. He scored 23 points on 8-of-17 from the field and grabbed nine rebounds and had an assist.
Sophomore Steven Crowl struggled tonight.
Tyler Wahl didn’t light up the scoreboard with points, scoring seven points. But he was phenomenal defensively and grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out three assists. Wahl is a defensive wizard.
Wisconsin’s defense picked it up a notch in the second half, Johnny Davis was incredible, and Alando Tucker trying to frame Greg Gard might be the best thing that could have ever happened to this program.
As I wrote the other day, nothing in this world has brought me more joy than the 2021-22 version of the Wisconsin basketball team.
It’s scary to think there are humans among us who thought Greg Gard is not a good head coach. Distance yourself from those people.
Wisconsin will travel to Columbus to play the No. 21 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-2, 1-0 B1G) on Saturday, December 11th. Tipoff is scheduled for 11:00 AM (Central Time) and will be televised on Big Ten Network (BTN).
