The Wisconsin Badgers

ANN ARBOR, Mich (WSAU-TSN)  Frank Kaminsky poured in 17 of his 25 points in the second half, as No. 21 Wisconsin raced out to an early lead and held on to take down 15th-ranked Michigan, 75-62, at Crisler Arena.

Kaminsky also pulled down a game-high 11 boards, Sam Dekker posted 15 points and nine rebounds, with Josh Gasser adding 13 for the Badgers (21-5, 8-5 Big Ten), winners in four straight.

Caris LeVert totaled 25 points for the Wolverines (18-7, 10-3), who have dropped three of their last five. Nik Stauskas had 11 points and Glenn Robinson III picked up 10 in a losing effort.

Michigan remained in a first-place tie with Michigan State, as the Spartans lost to Nebraska, 60-51.

Robinson's long jumper pulled the Wolverines to 52-47 with 6:54 remaining, and LeVert connected twice from the line to shrink the deficit to three less than a minute later to finish off a 9-0 run.

Kaminsky responded with consecutive baskets to open up a seven-point margin, then countered two foul shots from Stauskas with a two-pointer and Wisconsin led 58-51 with 3:48 on the clock. Kaminsky added a free throw and Gasser sank a trey and it was 62-51 with 3:13 showing.

A second and final trey from Kaminsky brought the lead to 65-52 with 2:17 to play, and though Michigan was forced to foul from there, the strategy backfired.

The Badgers went 10-for-10 from the line to lock up the victory.

Wisconsin led 7-2 early on, and pushed that edge to 14-4 on a Kaminsky jumper just prior to the five-minute mark.

Kaminsky fired away once more to give the Badgers a 23-11 edge with 8:13 left in the half, and a Ben Brust triple boosted the visitors' advantage to 31-16 with 4:40 showing.

LeVert's shot from distance pulled Michigan to 34-19 at the break.

Nigel Hayes' triple extended Wisconsin's lead to 42-26 just over four minutes into the second half, but Michigan made a brief charge to reduce its deficit below double digits. Jordan Morgan's bucket and free throw brought the hosts within 45-36 after the eight-minute mark.
