WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Caleb Swanigan had 18 points and 13 rebounds to help No. 20 Purdue get past No. 13 Wisconsin 66-55 Sunday, ending the Badgers’ nine-game winning streak.
The Boilermakers (14-3, 3-1 Big Ten) have won nine of 10 overall and three straight in this series.
Ethan Happ had 17 points and Nigel Hayes had 10 for the Badgers (13-3, 2-1).
Wisconsin trailed 40-36 with 14:35 to go when D’Mitrik Trice missed an open layup that would’ve cut deficit.
The Boilermakers responded with a 12-0 run and led by at least 11 the rest of the way.
Purdue’s defense never allowed the Badgers to get in sync. The Boilermakers used their size and strength inside to create problems for the Badgers, who shot 39 percent from the field, were 2 of 14 on 3-pointers and got outrebounded 34-22.
Isaac Haas added 13 points for the Boilermakers.
