Another heartbreaker at the Kohl Center.

NCAA Basketball: Michigan at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan Basketball traveled to Wisconsin for a Big Ten showdown and Madison continued to be a house of horrors for the Wolverines.

U-M fell to 12-7 and 2-4 in Big Ten conference play on Tuesday night with a 68-64 loss at the hands of the Badgers.

Michigan played its heart out for the duration of the contest, but were unable to get the job done on the road as the frustrations of the season continue to mount.

Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton Jr. led the Wolverines with 20 points and 10 points, respectively.

The Wolverines went into the locker room at halftime with 26-21 deficit to come back from and used a 17-2 run early in the second half to go up 38-30 on the Badgers, who appeared to be up against the ropes for most of the game.

Wisconsin’s Bronson Koenig took over from there, scoring 10 points in the final stretch that ultimately helped the Badgers escape a big-time upset on the home court.

Fouls were a problem for the Wolverines in the second half with Walton, DJ Wilson and Moritz Wagner all eventually fouling out of the contest.

In the end, it was another loss for Michigan.

Up next is Illinois, who ran Michigan off the floor in Champaign a few weeks back, on Saturday. The game is scheduled for a 2:15 p.m. ET tip from Crisler Center in Ann Arbor.
