Badgers stymie Hoosiers for 12th straight time

Sunday, March 17, 2013 12:01 am
CHICAGO - Wisconsin knocked off top-seed Indiana 68-56 in the semifinal of the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament at the United Center on Saturday.Some Wisconsin players spoke with the media following the victory about playing Indiana."Defense," Badger forward Ryan Evans said. "I mean, I think we played great defense. You know, that forces them to take better shots, or if they want to go and take bad shots and play fast, that's on them. But I think it's the defense, defensive side of the ball.""He's a great player," Evans said. "Reminds me a lot of Russell Westbrook. I just have a lot of respect for him. I've seen him work his way up, up the ranks.

"They really start at the bottom as a team, and him as an individual, and he's really worked his way up. I was just trying to stay in front of him the best I can, and you know, I was able to do that this game, not always, but this game I was successful at that.""We don't really think about that," Wisconsin center Jared Berggren said. "We just take it one game at a time. We wanted to come down here to try to win a championship. Indiana happened to be the next game, so we just take it one game at a time.

"But I mean, you know, we knew that we were capable of having success against this team; if we stuck to our rules and played our style of basketball, we are were able to do that today to come up with a win."
