— The University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team accomplished something Sunday afternoon that had never been done in the program’s history.

The Badgers defeated Indiana, 66-58 at the Kohl Center, to sweep the season series from the Hoosiers for the first time


A trio of Badgers scored in double digits as Wisconsin (18-7, 8-6) remained in a third-place tie with Michigan State in the Big Ten Conference.


Junior Tara Steinbauer led the Badgers with 19 points, while senior Rae Lin D’Alie had 14 and junior Alyssa Karel added 13. Indiana’s Jamie Braun led all players with 20 points. The Badgers improved to 8-1 when three players score in double digits.


The Badgers tried to pull away in the second half, but Braun sparked a 9-3 Hoosier run to tie the score at 50-50 with 3:50 remaining. Five straight points from D’Alie put the Badgers back on top at 55-50 before Indiana’s Sasha Chaplin answered with a three-pointer with 1:53 to play.


Wisconsin closed the game with an 11-5 run as all 11 points came from the free- throw line.


The Badgers outrebounded the Hoosiers 36-32. Sophomore Anya Covington and IU’s Danilsa Andujar each had seven boards.


The Badgers host No. 7 Ohio State at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Kohl Center.
