NCAA Game Summary - Purdue at Wisconsin



(Wednesday, March 5th)

Final Score: (9) Wisconsin 76, Purdue 70

Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Frank Kaminsky totaled 22 points and five rebounds to lead ninth-ranked Wisconsin to a 76-70 victory over Purdue on Wednesday.

"Frank has it in him. He�s already proven that. He was opportunistic. Guys got him the ball in some good spots and he finished," said Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan.

Traevon Jackson scored 14 points and dished out four assists for the Badgers (25-5, 12-5 Big Ten), who have now won eight straight conference games for the first time since the 1940-41 season. Josh Gasser added 13 points while shooting 9-for-10 from the charity stripe.

"It was nice to have everyone smiling in the locker room and smiling after the game. It makes it much better for everyone and the seniors especially. It's much better to get a win on your last time on the home floor. I've had some amazing experiences here at the Kohl Center and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can do the rest of the way," said Wisconsin forward Ben Brust.

Ronnie Johnson scored 15 points with six assists for the Boilermakers (15-15, 5-12), who will host Northwestern in their season finale on Sunday. Terone Johnson and A.J. Hammons scored 12 and 11 points, respectively, with Hammons adding 11 rebounds.

The Badgers jumped out of the gate on a 21-8 run through the first 11 1/2 minutes of the game. Purdue kept pace after falling behind by trading buckets the rest of the half and trailed by 11, 35-24, at the break.

Wisconsin stretched its lead to 15, 45-30, with 14 minutes left to play. The teams exchanged baskets over the next five minutes before the Boilermakers used a 13-2 burst to pull within 58-51.

Sam Dekker answered with a three-point play with 4 1/2 minutes left, and Gasser and Kaminsky each hit a pair at the line to push the margin to 12. The closest Purdue came down the wire was within six after a Kendall Stephens trey at the buzzer.
