The Wisconsin Badgers were humbled by the Minnesota Gophers last month in Minneapolis. Thursday night at the Kohl Center, they didn't get mad, they got even. 21st ranked Wisconsin held off the Gophers 78-70 to pick up their 20th win of the year against five losses and improved to 7-5 in the Big Ten. Ben Brust didn't miss from long range, he was four for four from beyond the three point line in leading Wisconsin with 20 points. Frank Kaminsky scored 17, Nigel Hayes added 15 and Sam Dekker chipped in with 10. Minnesota knocked down some three point shots late to keep it close but the Badgers kept them at arms length from the free throw line. Wisconsin made 30 of 36 charity tosses to secure the win. The Badgers play at Big Ten leader Michigan on Sunday.
