Rapid Reaction: Wisconsin 66 Purdue 59

For the 19th straight time, the #18 Wisconsin Badgers have followed a loss with a win as they upended #10 Purdue by the score of 66-59.

Tuesday’s game at the Kohl Center began as ugly as the blizzard which hit the Midwest at about the same time. Through fifteen minutes in the first half, Purdue (18-5, 7-3) had 10 turnovers and the Badgers (16-5, 6-3) were shooting around 30%. Similar to the storm, the game heated up in the second half with the lead changing hands numerous times.

But in the end it was the Badgers who prevailed behind Jon Leuer’s 24 points and 13 rebounds.
