Badgers fend off Purdue 69-65 Tuesday night

Wisconsin withstood Purdue's rally to take home another Big Ten victory on Tuesday night, winning 69-65.

Aleem Ford led the way with 19 points, while Brad Davison and Brevin Pritzl each tossed in 13 and Nathan Reuvers added 12.

Wisconsin's advantage came at the free throw line, where the Badgers shot 19 of 20. Purdue out-rebounded the Badgers, but neither team shot particularly well, each being held under 40% for the night.

It was Wisconsin's third win in a row, and sets up a five-way logjam in the conference for third place at 9-6 in league play.

Wisconsin will break part of that tie when they host Rutgers this Sunday at the Kohl Center.
