Tracking the true freshmen: Wisconsin

Noah Vonleh scored 18 points to lead the IU freshmen, while Stanford Robinson added seven, but their production was all IU saw from its freshmen class during the 69-58 loss to Wisconsin.

The Indiana freshmen class continues to make an impact each game for the Hoosiers this season. With every game, AllHoosiers.com will chart the production of the IU freshmen.

Here's a look at how IU's freshmen class performed Tueday evening in an 69-58 loss on the road to Wisconsin.

Noah Vonleh: Before Yogi Ferrell knocked down three desperation 3-pointers in the final minute and a half of IU's loss, Vonleh had been IU's top scorer. He added 18 points while pulling down six rebounds to lead his team. Vonleh knocked down two 3-pointers of his own, going 2-for-3 from beyond the arc, while scoring a little bit from all around the court. Beyond fellow freshmen Stanford Robinson, he was IU's only scorer shooting at least 50 percent, as the Hoosiers shot just mediocre as a team – 42.1 percent on the evening. One surprise in his line, though: Vonleh didn't take a single free throw attempt, while shooting a season-high 15 shots. The Hoosiers took just three as a team, but one would think he could have been even more successful had he been a bit tougher down low.

Troy Williams: After putting up 12 in a win against Northwestern, Williams was shut out, taking just two shots and missing both Tuesday evening. He pulled down five rebounds and dished off two assists while playing just a minute less than his performance against the Wildcats, but he was never able to get into the offensive rhythm. In the second half, he seemed quite the defensive liability, as numerous times Wisconsin players stormed by him on the baseline for an easy bucket.

Stanford Robinson: Robinson was held out of the starting lineup for the second game in a row, with Austin Etherington taking his place. Robinson only played 13 minutes, while Tom Crean sided with Evan Gordon more often to replace Etherington, who suffered in foul trouble for much of the game. Gordon, though, didn't score a single point, and Robinson shot 3-for-6 for seven points while also pulling down five rebounds. After another scoreless game for Etherington in the starting role, look for Robinson to possibly take back his starting job Thursday against Iowa.

Devin Davis: Davis was IU's first sub off the bench Tuesday, but he played a very limited role, logging just three minutes and one turnover on his stat line.

Collin Hartman: Hartman played the final minute of IU's loss, pulling down an offensive rebound with 25 seconds to go to set up Ferrell for his final desperation 3-pointer.
