BLOOMINGTON, Indiana (Ticker) -- A.J. Moye left Assembly Hall for the last time in tears. Wisconsin left with a slim chance to share the Big Ten regular-season title.
Devin Harris drilled five 3-pointers and scored 26 points to lead the 14th-ranked Badgers to an easy 70-52 victory over Indiana in the regular-season finale for both teams.
Wisconsin (21-6, 12-4 Big Ten) closed with a four-game winning streak and can get at least a share of the conference regular season title for the third straight year if Illinois loses at Ohio State on Sunday.
"There's nothing else we can do in the league race," said Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan. "We finished strong and now we can only watch Illinois and Ohio State."
The loss was the fifth in six games for Indiana (13-14, 7-9), which needs to win two games in the Big Ten tournament to be eligible for an invitation to the National Invitation Tournament.
The Hoosiers have reached the NCAA Tournament 18 consecutive seasons, but need to win the Big Ten tournament to extend that streak.
Indiana's plight was best expressed by Moye, a 6-2 senior guard who had 11 points and nine rebounds in his final game at Assembly Hall but could not prevent another loss. After being replaced in the final minute, Moye cried after hugging coach Mike Davis.
"I wish we could have given you something better, but we've got a lot left, we've got the (Big Ten) tournament," Moye told the fans after the team's seventh loss of the season here, the most since 1984-85 - the last time Indiana missed the NCAA Tournament.
Moye and senior center George Leach were major contributors on the Indiana team that lost to Maryland two years ago in the national championship game. Leach finished with 10 points and eight rebounds.
Once again, Indiana was done in by poor shooting. Entering the game with a field-goal percentage of 39.6, the Hoosiers shot 34.5 percent on Saturday. Indiana made just 7-of-23 shots and Harris hit four 3-pointers in the first half when Wisconsin built a 33-18 lead.
The Badgers increased the lead to 46-30 before Marshall Strickland hit a pair of 3-pointers to highlight a 7-0 run which pulled Indiana within nine. But the Hoosiers never got any closer.
Harris hit a layup and Zach Morley converted a three-point play in an 11-2 run which opened a 62-44 lead.
Harris limited Hoosiers star Bracey Wright to eight points on 4-of-16 shooting as Wisconsin beat Indiana for the fifth straight time.
