Indiana basketball snaps their three-game losing streak with a dominant win over No. 18 Wisconsin on Saturday in Assembly Hall.
Trayce Jackson-Davis and the Hoosiers raised the roof on Assembly Hall with a dominant showing against the Badgers on Saturday, January 14, winning 63-45 behind Jackson-Davis’ third straight double-double and Jalen Hood-Schifino’s 16-point afternoon.
Despite leading just 21-20 at halftime, the Hoosiers came out of halftime with a completely different energy and passion that we haven’t quite seen since November 30. What changed?

#6. Trayce Jackson-Davis and the Indiana Hoosiers raise the roof on Assembly Hall
After losing three straight games to begin 2023, Indiana basketball had Hoosier Nation ready to blow a lid off the whole coaching staff and program. A two-point loss at Iowa, a one-point defeat at home against Northwestern, and an embarrassing 19-point loss at Penn State. The Hoosiers were trending down and nearing rock bottom.
From highlight-reel one-on-one post moves from Trayce Jackson-Davis to high-flying dunks and mid-range jumpers, Indiana basketball finally showed its true colors once again against No. 18 Wisconsin in Assembly Hall.
The biggest surprise was the defensive effort. Holding the Badgers to just 45 points and under 40 percent from the field, three-point line and free throw line is crazy impressive. It’s the lowest point total Indiana has held a Wisconsin team to since beating them 66-41 on March 12, 1992. Furthermore, it’s the first time the Hoosiers beat a ranked Wisconsin team by double digits since January 8, 2005.
