Badger men hand Hoosiers first big ten loss

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Trevon Hughes scored 16 points, Marcus Landry had 14 points and 11 rebounds and 13th-ranked Wisconsin held on to beat 11th-ranked Indiana 62-49 in men's basketball in Madison tonight.

The Hoosiers rallied behind D.J. White and freshman Eric Gordon, but the Badgers hung on and then pulled away to the win.

White had his way with Wisconsin (17-3, 7-1 Big Ten) most of the game, finishing with 22 points and 17 rebounds for the Hoosiers (17-3, 6-1).

But Wisconsin's Michael Flowers, who scored 10 points, mostly contained Gordon, who fell awkwardly in practice Tuesday and was wearing a padded foam splint on his left wrist.
