Indiana was without starting center Kel’el Ware against Wisconsin, where a lack of defense and an efficient Badgers offense spelled the Hoosiers’ doom. Xavier Johnson looked a bit better in relief minutes and could get more run against Illinois.
Illinois dropped an overtime game on the road in Evanston to fade in the conference title race. The Illini are a tournament team, but are still searching for a statement win.
