Ferrell leads IU to 59-58 win over Wisconsin

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell scored 19 points and O.G. Anunoby added 11 to lead Indiana past Wisconsin 59-58 on Tuesday.
    
The Hoosiers (13-3, 3-0 Big Ten) have won eight straight, beating the Badgers for only the second time since 2007.
    
Wisconsin (9-7, 1-2) was led by Bronson Koenig and Nigel Hayes who scored 15 points on a night full of offensive struggles. At one point in the second half, the Badgers went more than eight minutes without a basket - and yet they still managed to hang around.
    
Indiana finally took the lead when Ferrell and Anunoby broke a 34-34 tie with back-to-back 3-pointers.
    
Wisconsin tied the score at 53 on two free throws from Hayes with 52.4 seconds to go.
    
Ferrell answered with a 13-foot jumper and sealed the win with four free throws in the final 13.7 seconds - barely enough after Wisconsin hit a buzzer-beating 3.
