Badgers hold off Boilers
Frank Kaminsky scored 22 points, Traevon Jackson added 14 and Wisconsin finished off its home schedule with a 76-70 home 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.
Nebraska 70, Indiana 60: Walter Pitchford scored the Cornhuskers' first nine points and knocked down a key 3-pointer with 1:57 to go, allowing Nebraska to hold off Indiana's second-half comeback, its first win in six tries in Bloomington.
