Here are some fun facts, courtesy of the UW Athletic Department, on the suddenly streaking Wisconsin Badgers after their B1G CHAMPIONSHIP CLINCHING VICTORY AT INDIANA!
- The Wisconsin men’s basketball team clinched a share of the 2019-20 Big Ten Championship.
- It is their 19th Big Ten Championship and first since 2015.
- Micah Potter had 14 points (5-of-8 shooting) and rounded out his third double-double of the season with 11 rebounds.
- Nate Reuvers led the way scoring for UW and tallied 17 points (7-of-14 shooting).
- D’Mitrik Trice missed his first six shots and was shut out in the first half but still managed to finish with four points to become the first junior in school history with 1,000 points, 300 assists and 300 rebounds (not steals). He also had five assists and five rebounds on the day.
- The Badgers were 9-of-22 on threes, hitting their magic number of threes to win.
- Wisconsin only had two points (thanks Brevin Pritzl!) from their bench, while the Hoosiers had 14.
Once more from #Badgers coach Greg Gard: "We don’t have a star. We have a team full of stars. We’ve done it by committee and we did it by committee today."— Jeff Potrykus (@jaypo1961) March 7, 2020
- Indiana doubled up the Badgers on the offensive glass, grabbing 12 to UW’s six. However, IU only scored one more second chance point (15-14) than Wisconsin.
- Coming into the game, much was talked about how Indiana scores a lot in the paint and while they did outscore Wisconsin there 22-20, it took them 35 shots to get those 22 points. The Hoosiers only shot 31% in the paint on the game.
- Badgers had an eFG% of 50 while the Hoosiers had an eFG% of 40.
