Wisconsin Beats Indiana 79-71 in Big Ten Tourney

Posted: Friday, March 9, 2012 --- 3:23p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Rob Wilson scored a career-high 30 points and No. 14 Wisconsin tied the Big Ten tournament record with 13 3-pointers to get past No. 15 Indiana 79-71 in Friday's Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.

The Badgers (24-8) will face No. 8 Michigan State in Saturday's semifinal round.

Three Indiana players -- Christian Watford, Cody Zeller and Jordan Hulls -- each scored 17 points. It was the Hoosiers' first game without Verdell Jones, who tore the ACL in his right knee Thursday night.

Wilson was 7 of 10 from beyond the arc, the last coming with 35.4 seconds left to seal the victory.

Indiana never led after Wisconsin made seven 3s in the first 10 minutes of the game, and the Badgers have now won 10 straight in the series.
