Danlisa Andujar made two free throws with 3.2 seconds left to give Indiana a 62-60 victory over visiting Wisconsin in Big Ten Conference women's basketball Thursday night.


The victory was the Hoosiers' first in Big Ten play. Indiana is 1-14 and 6-22 overall.


The Badgers fell to 4-11 and 8-19.


Wisconsin could not overcome 23 turnovers.


The Hoosiers held UW's junior guard Taylor Wurtz scoreless through the first 11 minutes of the game. The Badgers' leading scorer came on to finish with 22 points and also grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds.


Anya Covington added 10 points and 11 rebounds.


The Hoosiers jumped to a quick 21-9 lead.


"We didn't come out ready to play, and they took advantage of that," said UW coach Bobbie Kelsey. "It's just disheartening because with four (straight) losses we should be ready to play, but apparently not."


Kelsey said the turnovers were critical.


"You can't turn the ball over 23 times and think you're going to beat anybody," the first-year head coach said. "They scored 26 points off of our turnovers. Its just carelessness, not paying attention to detail."
