Kevin ‘‘Yogi’’ Ferrell scored 25 points Tuesday night, leading Indiana to a stunning 75-72 upset over previously unbeaten Wisconsin in Bloomington, Ind.

The third-ranked Badgers (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) were trying to become the first team ever to win 13 straight games over the Hoosiers (12-5, 2-2).

Wisconsin started the night as one of Division 1’s four remaining unbeaten teams and it looked like it would stay that way when the Badgers took a 10-point lead with 13:27 to play.

But the Hoosiers, playing their best game of the season, answered with 12 straight points to take a 54-52 lead with 9 minutes left.

Indiana led, 70-65, with 2:03 remaining, but still had to fend off Wisconsin’s late challenge. Ferrell made two free throws with 18.3 seconds left to give Indiana the 3-point lead and both of Wisconsin’s potentially tying 3-pointers came up short.
