Wisconsin Badgers fall apart in second half as Michigan Wolverines cap improbable run with Big Ten title

WASHINGTON — It was a long night on the offensive end for the No. 24 Badgers (12-6 Big Ten, 25-9 overall) Sunday at the Verizon Center as they couldn’t string enough successful possessions together to knock off Michigan (10-8, 24-11) 71-56 and claim the Big Ten Tournament crown. Wisconsin fell behind early, 30-20, but clawed back into the game to close the half.

Against the Wildcats, the Badgers finally got burned.
