For the Badgers, going into Lafayette and beating Purdue, it's a real program boost. We haven't won a game there, against Purdue, since 2014. Johnny Davis hit for 37 points, and Brad Davidson had 15. They were the only two Badgers in double figures.

What won the game for the Badgers was their tough inside play, and constantly being in the face of their 3-point shooters. Inside, it was a war, and 3 Badgers actually fouled out. But, they did their jobs, keeping the Boilermakers from making easy shots.

Purdue was ranked #3, and Wisconsin #23. This year, the only two losses the Badgers have, Ohio State and Providence, were to top 20 teams. They've also won two games from top 20 teams. This young team has a lot of wins ahead of them beyond this year. It's fun watching them play.

If you missed this last night....well worth a watch!

He was on fire. Had a great night. Five guys hitting double figures. You're tough to beat when you get that kind of a spread.

When I look at where they stand in national rankings on offense and defense, I wonder how they can be playing this well. It won't be long and we'll see how good they really are. They're going into the meat of their conference schedule.
