Box Score |
• Wednesday’s sellout crowd marked the 132nd consecutive sellout at the Kohl Center.
• Wisconsin is now 11-0 at the Kohl Center this season, winning by an average of 21.1 points.
• Overall, the Badgers have won 14 consecutive home games and 32 of their last 33. The current win-streak is tied for 17th nationally and the second-longest active mark in the Big Ten.
• At home in the Big Ten, Wisconsin is 73-6 (.924) under Ryan.
• Ranked No. 1 nationally in free-throw percentage entering the game at 81.2 percent, the Badgers converted at a 94.1 percent rate Thursday by making 16-of-17. All 17 attempts came in the second half.
• The Badgers used their fifth different starting lineup of the season when Jon Leuer, Keaton Nankivil, Jordan Taylor, Josh Gasser and Tim Jarmusz took the floor to start.
• With the victory, Wisconsin has now defeated Indiana seven straight times, including the past 10 meetings at the Kohl Center.
• Wisconsin trailed 34-30 at the half Thursday, marking just the 30th time in 158 home games under Bo Ryan that has happened. With the Badgers’ win over the Hoosiers, UW has now come back to win 20 of those 30 games.
• Wisconsin committed just five turnovers against the Hoosiers, the sixth time this season and third time in Big Ten play that UW has been under the five-turnover mark.
• Wisconsin’s 69-60 victory marked the 35th-straight home game, not counting overtime, that the Badgers held their opponent under 70 points. UW is tied with Ohio State for the longest such streak in the nation.
• Wisconsin is one of two teams, Fairfield being the other, to not allow an opponent to reach 70 points this season. Bo Ryan holds a 215-49 mark (.814) in such situations.
• Indiana shot just 2-of-7 from 3-point range. That ties for the fewest 3-pointers made by a UW opponent this season, joining Manhattan which was also 2-of-7.

• Taylor’s 28 points are the second-most by a UW player this season. Jon Leuer scored 29 against South Dakota on Dec. 4. Wisconsin improves to 10-1 all-time when Taylor goes for 20 or more.
• Taylor took back the Big Ten scoring lead in conference games with his performance. He entered
the game ranked second in the Big Ten in scoring during conference play at 20.8 points per game. Taylor is now up to 22.0 points per contest, surpassing Purdue’s JaJuan Johnson (21.0).
• Taylor had four assists to just one turnover against the Hoosiers, keeping his assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.95 this season. In his career, he has just 36 turnovers in 41 Big Ten games.

• Leuer now has 1,101 career points, passing Ken Siebel (1961-63) for 28th on UW’s career scoring list.
