Wisconsin 85, Indiana 61

BY foxsports • March 9, 2009

Joe Krabbenhoft scored 19 points in his final home game, helping Wisconsin clinch a first-round bye in the Big Ten tournament with an 85-61 victory over Indiana on Sunday. Jason Bohannon added 15 points for the Badgers (19-11, 10-8 Big Ten), who shook off a January losing streak to win seven of their last nine games and position themselves for an NCAA tournament bid. Verdell Jones had a career-high 23 for the Hoosiers (6-24, 1-17), who continued to struggle in their first season under coach Tom Crean. Sunday's game was a return to the state for Crean, who abruptly left Marquette to take over Indiana's troubled but tradition-laden program last spring.
