After upsetting regular season champion Indiana on Saturday, the Badgers lost a hard-fought matchup with Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament championship game Sunday, 50-43 in Chicago.

Traevon Jackson led the Badgers (23-11) with 10 points, while Sam Dekker added 8. 

Wisconsin had a 24-23 lead at the halftime break, but couldn't hang on in a back-and-forth second half.
