at Wisconsin (16-9 Overall, 9-6 Big Ten)  69
Purdue (14-13, 7-9)  65

Final Score

Bucky
forged a 13-point lead (51-38) midway thru the 2nd half, only to see it evaporate in the waning minutes of the game, as the Badgers have been been prone to do (see Illinois, Iowa, St Mary's, Michigan St) this season.  The difference in this game (as it was vs Michigan St), is that the Badgers found a way to hang on for the win.  Tonight, the game was sealed at the charity stripe where the Badgers went 19 of 20, and Brad Davison & Brevin Pritzl took turns sinking 8 of 8 free throws over the game's final 28 seconds to close out  a crucial 69-65 win over Purdue.

Badger forward Aleem Ford, with his parents visiting from Georgia and in attendance, became the 2nd Badger in as many games to record career-highs in points (19) and treys (5) to go along with 7 rebounds.  Ford was joined by teammates Pritzl (13), Davison (13) and Nate Reuvers (12) in double-figure scoring.

I will say this, the FT shooting has been vastly improved this season. And in a season where little things need to go right, that's been huge.

What was the deal with the student sections being empty?

Marquette's using mid-terms as an excuse...not sure if the same holds true in Madison.

Never knew we had so many Astrophysics kids in the state. What ever happened to Poly Sci and Folklore majors?

The UW student attendance was a disappointment during the football season also ... besides showing up late, per usual, I don't believe they filled out their section for any of the home games, except possibly the Michigan contest.

That's because they are all to busy playing on their cell phones...  ðŸ˜„

Purdue is looking to be NIT bound maybe. Beating them at home is good. Beating them by such a small number is somewhat worrisome.

Honestly, in CBB this year, that's just the way it's gone for almost everyone.
