Wisconsin received the good news that the Badgers were back to full strength for Monday’s game vs. Purdue. That news was a harbinger of things to come for the contest in West Lafayette.

From the opening tip, Wisconsin was eager and ready to go toe-to-toe with Purdue. Early foul trouble for Jaden Ivey in the first half and a poor shooting night led the Badgers to a 29-24 lead at the break.

In the second half, Johnny Davis continued a marvelous run as he produced a career-high 37 points on 13-for-24 shooting. He rounded out a double-double with 14 rebounds to go with 3 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.

Davis also produced a late 3-pointer to give Wisconsin the breathing room to slip away with the 74-69 upset:

For the game, Wisconsin held Purdue to a 41.1% shooting night. Jaden Ivey scored 14 points for Purdue but had an uncharacteristically poor shooting night while going 3-for-9 from the floor. Zach Edey led the Boilermakers with 24 points off the bench.

After a near-dominant run in non-conference play, Purdue falls to 1-2 in conference play with losses to Rutgers and now Wisconsin. Meanwhile, the Badgers – back at full strength – improved to 11-2 overall and 2-1 in the B1G.
