Greg Gard had much to say after a blowout loss at Indiana on Saturday.

The No. 18 Wisconsin squad fell to an unranked Indiana team in Bloomington by a score of 63-45. With the loss, the Badgers fall to 3-3 in conference play and 11-5 overall. The victory moves the Hoosiers to 11-6 and 2-4 in the conference.

After the game, Gard lamented his team’s second-half defense.

“I thought the first half we muddied that up for the most part and stopping the ball and not letting it get downhill,” said Gard. “The second half, from my angle, were some alleys that were there that didn’t appear in the first half.”

The Badgers were only outscored by 1 in the first half but were dominated in the second half by a score of 42-25.

Gard also stressed that he did not believe his team’s issue is effort.

“Effort is not our issue, and it’s never been the issue with this group,” said Gard. “Execution, decisions, some tactical things, we’ve been better than we were this afternoon.”

Gard’s team was outrebounded on the boards and was ice cold from the floor, shooting 32.1% on the day. The Badgers will look to bounce back at home against Penn State on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
