MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Frank Kaminsky scored 22 points, Traevon Jackson added 14 and No. 9 Wisconsin finished off its home schedule with a 76-70 victory over Purdue on Wednesday night.

 

Kaminsky, a 7-footer who can shoot from the perimeter, went 4 of 5 from 3-point range for the Badgers (25-5, 12-5 Big Ten), who won their eighth straight thanks in large part to shooting 48 percent from the field in the first half.

 

Ronnie Johnson had 15 points for the Boilermakers (15-15, 5-12), who lost their fifth straight and fell into sole possession of last place in the conference.

 

Wisconsin attacked the lane early before starting to hit from the perimeter. The Badgers had a 16-point lead whittled to seven with 5 minutes left but were otherwise in firm control.
