Haverhill's Vonleh scored 18 in loss to Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Haverhill’s Noah Vonleh scored 18 points for Indiana last night, but the Hoosiers lost 69-58 to No. 14 Wisconsin.

The 6-10 Vonleh was 8 of 15 from the floor, including 2 of 3 from 3-point range. He also grabbed six rebounds.

The freshman is averaging 11.9 points and 9.3 rebounds rebounds per game.

Sam Dekker led Wisconsin with 16 points.

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan told his team at halftime to just do its thing. He told Dekker during one huddle to make his presence felt.

In other words, there was no need to panic.

“I kept asking him to make sure that the people who bought the seats knew he was in the gym,” Ryan said. “I thought it was a good suggestion.”

Like the rest of the Badgers, Dekker struggled in the first half, when the Hoosiers (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten) held Wisconsin (23-5, 10-5) to its lowest point production of the season.

But down 29-19 at halftime, the turnaround was immediate for the Badgers. They outscored Indiana 9-2 over the first 3 minutes of the second half as the shots started to fall.

That was a sign of things to come as the Badgers shot 62 percent in the second half after hitting just 26 percent of their shots in the opening half. That included going 6 of 11 from 3-point range after making just 1 of 10 in the first half.

“He kind of put it into me to play hard, play aggressive and when you do that, good things happen,” said Dekker, who was 1 for 3 in the first half but hit all four of his shots in the second. He also hit all five of his free throws.
