All five starters scored in double figures, including Frank Kaminsky scoring 16 points, and Sam Dekker and Traevon Jackson adding 15 points each. The win snapped a three-game losing skid for the ninth-ranked Badgers. It was just the fourth win for UW in Mackey Arena since 1972 but the second in row. The last time Wisconsin won back-to-back game at Purdue was 1917 and 1918. UW returns home to face Northwestern on Wednesday.

The Todd Mayo show in the fourth quarter was not enough to pull the upset win in overtime last night. Marquette, wearing their pink uniforms, fell to fourth-ranked Villanova in a 94-85 loss at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Mayo scored the last ten of his 18 points in regulation for the Golden Eagles, tying the game at 77 all and sending it to overtime. Wildcats proved to be too much for Marquette in the end. Davante Gardner led all Marquette players with 29 points, 13 rebounds and two assists.

Wisconsin Badgers running back James White was impressive at yesterday’s Senor Bowl, rushing for 62 yards in 11 carries. The North squad ended up falling to the South by a final of 20-10. White definitely got the attention of NFL scouts on his lone one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, thanks to a textbook stiff arm on a South defender. The run also earned White a trend on Twitter. Before the Senior Bowl, several outlets projected the running back as a possible second to third-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

Paul Millsap led six Atlanta players in double figures with 20 points as the Hawks crushed the Milwaukee Bucks 112-87 on Saturday. Lou Williams added 18, Mike Scott scored 14 and DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver added 12 apiece for the Hawks, winners in three of their last four games. Elton Brand had 10 points off the bench in the win. Brandon Knight scored a game-high 27 points and Ersan Ilyasova added 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Bucks, who allowed 26 points on 20 turnovers. Milwaukee has dropped 12 of its last 13 games.

 The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team was unable to complete the sweep of Ohio State and lost 3-1 before a sell-out crowd of over 15,000 at the Kohl Center in Madison Saturday evening. UW scored first on Mark Zengerle’s goal in the second period but the Buckeyes (12-9-1 overall, 2-5-1 in the Big Ten) quickly scored two goals in the same period to take a 2-1 lead and added an empty net goal in the third. OSU goalie Christian Frey made 36 saves as the Badgers outshot OSU 37-19. Wisconsin completes its 12-game homestand with a 10-2 record. Overall the Badgers are 14-7-1, 5-3-0 in the Big Ten. The No. 9 ranked Badgers are at Michigan next weekend.
