No. 8 Wisconsin holds off Marquette, 70-64
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Sam Dekker had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 8 Wisconsin withstood a late Marquette rally for a 70-64 victory Saturday that snapped its two-game losing streak in the intrastate rivalry.

Frank Kaminsky added 11 points, including a straightaway 3 to give Wisconsin a 60-54 lead with 1:18 left. The crucial bucket stopped a 10-2 run by Marquette that helped close an 11-point deficit.

Jamil Wilson scored 22 points, including a 3 from the wing that had drawn Marquette (5-4) within three. Kaminsky then nailed his clutch 3 for the Badgers (10-0), who are off to the best start in 20 years.

Dekker deserves much of the credit after puzzling the Golden Eagles with his inside-out game. He hit three 3s and pleased the crowd with thunderous dunks.
