Has the curse broken?

I watched a whole Wisconsin game and they didn't lose! It must be a very special day.

Wisconsin led by as many as 22, Indiana never had the lead and Wisconsin broke a three game losing streak (AND five of the last six) as they beat Indiana 72-54. This is the 5th straight home win against Indiana for the Badgers.

At half Wisconsin had scored 21 points off 8 Hoosier turnovers. Indiana's #1 post player notched less than 20:00 before he fouled out of the game with almost 10:00 remaining in the game. Alando Tucker had 29 points.

Indiana shot under 30% for the game and made a measley9 of their first 32 shots. They were 3-16 from behind the 3 point line.

Highlight of the game came when Tanner Bronson, former team manager and graduate of my high school hit a 3. Seriously, I fell off the couch. Coach Bo Ryan almost gave him the game ball, but decided against it because Bronson was 1-4 from the charity stripe. Apparently the team booed him. Tanner is apparently everyone's favorite puppy dog. The kid makes one 3 and the whole team loves him for it.

the kid is a scrub and shouldn't have a roster spot let alone get PT.
