Nate Reuvers led four Wisconsin scorers in double figures with 17 points, lifting the 24th-ranked Badgers to a 60-56 win over Indiana on Saturday in Bloomington, Ind.
Micah Potter added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Badgers (21-10, 14-6 Big Ten), who won their eighth straight game and clinched at least a share of the Big Ten Conference regular-season title.
Trailing 51-44, Wisconsin took control of the game with a late 10-0 run, capped by Brad Davison's 3-pointer with 4:05 left.
Indiana cut Wisconsin's lead to 56-54 on a 3-pointer by Al Durham with 55 seconds remaining, but a Reuvers putback with 21 seconds left regained the four-point edge. After Durham made two free throws for Indiana, Davison calmly made two free throws with 7.6 seconds to clinch the win.
Senior guard Devonte Green led Indiana (19-12, 9-11 Big Ten) with 16 points, but the Hoosiers couldn't overcome shooting just 34.5 percent from the floor and 40 percent (6 of 15) from 3-point range.
Green got off to a hot start on Senior Day, scoring 13 of Indiana's first 17 points. A 3-pointer from freshman swingman Jerome Hunter then put the Hoosiers up 20-13 with 11:42 left in the first half.
Wisconsin cut Indiana's lead to 22-19 on a jumper by Potter and 28-25 on a 3-pointer from Aleem Ford with 4:28 left in the first half. Neither team scored in the final 4:28 through grinding possessions that resulted in missed shots and turnovers.
Green scored 16 of Indiana's points in the first half.
Ford led Wisconsin with nine points in the first half, as the Badgers shot 37.5 percent from the field and 46.2 percent (6 of 13) from 3-point range.
