Badger men vault to third place in Big Ten standings

The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team led from the start, but it wasn’t as easy as that would suggest. A feisty Purdue team kept it close by outshooting Wisconsin from the field (40 percent to 38 percent) and having a significant rebounding advantage. Wisconsin made up for that by knocking down 19 of 20 attempts from the charity stripe.

Forward Aleem Ford led the Badgers with 19 points. Starter Brad Davison and Brevin Pritzl, off the bench, chipped in 13 each. Wisconsin moves into a five-way tie for third place with second-place Penn State only a game ahead of the congestion. That logjam will begin to break up tonight. Rutgers is one of the other 9-6 Big Ten squads, and they host the Wolverines at 6 PM. For one night, at least, the Badgers will be rooting for the Wolverines.
