On the road for a big play, the Rutgers basketball team went in a different direction and took off.
The Rutgers men’s basketball team held down Wisconsin and beat the Badgers for the Big Ten title, 107 to 91, at Indianapolis’ Carrier Dome on Jan. 8.
The win was the first of the season for coach Chris Ash.
Rutgers trailed Wisconsin by 10 at halftime and went into halftime down by 23, but the Wildcats answered with an 8-0 run on the second half to pull within one and never looked back.
The last time the two teams played the year after Ash took over from Ron Potts, the basketball team lost to Purdue on Jan. 22. Wisconsin went on to win the Big Ten and win its first league title since 2003.
Wisconsin forward Nate Sudfeld said his team needs to focus on the next one.
“It’s the biggest game of the year, and we’ve got to get better,” he said. “There’s been a ton of things going on. We just got to execute and continue to work, and we will.”
Giannis Antetokounmpo was the Bucks’ star, scoring 26 points and grabbing 26 rebounds for his 10th double-double and third in as many games this year.
Kris Jenkins added 20 points and five assists for Milwaukee after missing seven games with a strained groin. The Bucks lost to the Detroit Pistons in overtime a week ago and went winless in nine games.
The Wisconsin men’s basketball team has been a lot better this year with guard Ben Brust back after missing the entire regular season. Brust led the Badgers with 19 points and was 9-of-14 from the field in the first half.
Wisconsin’s defense was on fire, finishing with a 48.5 field-goal percentage to Rutgers’ 41.1 and limiting the Wildcats to 39 percent shooting during the second half. On Tuesday, Wisconsin held Rutgers to an average of 2.22 points per possession.
