Story By Associated Press

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN - Sam Dekker and Traevon Jackson each scored 15 points Saturday, helping No. 9
Wisconsin end its three-game losing streak with a 72-58 victory at Purdue.

The Badgers (17-3, 4-3 Big Ten) won for the first time since starting 16-0. It
was only their fourth win ever at Mackey Arena.

Terone Johnson and Bryson Scott each had 10 points to lead Purdue, but the
Boilermakers (13-7, 3-4) lost their second straight.

Wisconsin relied on an old-school formula to win this one - committing just nine
turnovers while limiting the Boilermakers to just 35.4 percent shooting from the
field.


Despite making only 13 baskets over the final 34 minutes, the Badgers still
managed to turn a three-point halftime lead into a 10-point advantage early in
the second half, then fended off one Purdue charge before pulling away late.
