Tracking the true freshmen: Wisconsin

Stanford Robinson had a career-high 13 points to lead IU's young guns. Check out how they did individually here.

The Indiana freshmen class continues to impact this Hoosier team in numerous ways. With every game, AllHoosiers.com will chart the production of the IU freshmen.

Here's a look at how IU's freshmen performed Tuesday evening against No. 3 Wisconsin at Assembly Hall.

Noah Vonleh: Vonleh started off with two 3-pointers in IU's first four shots. He sunk both of them to go 7-for-13 on the season from beyond the arc. But from there, he really became a bit of a non-factor for the rest of the half, not scoring any more points until after halftime – the same trend as last Saturday when he scored IU's first 12 points and didn't make another bucket till the final 20 minutes.

But his next two buckets were huge. After Yogi Ferrell missed the second of two free throws with 9:44 remaining in the game, Vonleh got the rebound in mid-air and tipped it back in to tie the game at 52-all. The next trip down the court, another layup gave IU its first lead since early in the first half. Those layups capped an IU 12-0 run after the Hoosiers fell behind by double digits at 52-42.

Stanford Robinson: Robinson is making more and more of a case every game since the start of Big Ten play that he should be a legitimate contender for a starting role on this IU roster. In 24 minutes, he scored a career-high 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field. While Ferrell struggled to find his stroke either in the lane or from beyond the arc, it was Robinson who provided a few key drives early in the game to keep the Hoosiers within arm's length of Wisconsin. He turned the ball over just once while grabbing five rebounds.

Troy Williams: Williams continues to keep his starting spot, but against Wisconsin, he only logged eight minutes and was really a non-factor. His only bucket came on a dunk while IU was in the midst of an 8-0 run after Wisconsin had pulled away at 18-10. In those eight minutes, though, he committed two fouls which hurt the time he was able to get on the floor while other players continued to shine.

Collin Hartman: Hartman played for a single three-minute stint midway through the first half, but he came in with a completely empty stat line – no points, rebounds, assists, blocks, turnovers or fouls.

Devin Davis: Davis showed some promise in the beginning of the season, but lately his production has steadily declined, and it appears that Crean may rely more on guys like Jeff Howard or Austin Etherington from the bench before Davis sees any time. He scored no buckets and grabbed just one defensive rebound in three minutes of action.
