Coach Ryan didn't need big halftime pep talk


MADISON, Wisconsin (WKOW)  The Badgers made Bo Ryan look like an in-game adjustment genius Tuesday night.

Wisconsin turned a 10-point halftime deficit into an 11-point win over Indiana.

The Badgers looked like two different teams.

In the first half, they hit only 26 percent of their shots and scored a season-low 19 points.

After the intermission, they shot a scorching 62 percent from the field.

They've now won their sixth straight game.

Ryan admits he didn't change much at the half.

His team just started hitting shots.

"The halftime talk had nothing to do with threats, violence, none of that. It was 'we know what we can do, we just got to do it,' " Ryan said.

He just told us relax, you know, we'll figure this out. It's 40 minutes of basketball, not 20 and our best basketball is ahead of us and it's our turn to do it. We were able to calm down and go out there and do it," said Sam Dekker.
