Preview | Box Score | Recap

MADISON, Wis. (AP)—Jordan Taylor scored 20 points, Jon Leuer added 17 and Wisconsin used a 13-0 run in the second half to take the lead for good in a 66-50 victory over Michigan on Wednesday night.

Wisconsin (12-3, 2-1 Big Ten) beat Michigan for the ninth straight time by settling down and taking control following a sloppy first half.

The Badgers committed six turnovers in the opening period after having five in their previous two games combined. In the second half, Wisconsin didn’t turn the ball over until 1:15 was left and the game had long been decided.

Zack Novak scored 15 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 10 as Michigan (11-4, 1-2) built a six-point lead in the first half, but couldn’t grab a bigger advantage when the Wolverines had the chance.
