Badgers Drop Third Straight

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points and freshman Trey Burke outplayed Jordan Taylor for most of the game, leading No. 16 Michigan to an impressive 59-41 victory over No. 18 Wisconsin on Sunday.

Burke scored 14 points for the Wolverines (13-3, 3-1 Big Ten), who snapped a 10-game losing streak against the Badgers. Taylor, Wisconsin's star point guard, was held to 12 points, a majority of which came after Michigan had taken control of the game.

The Badgers (12-5, 1-3) have lost three straight.

Michigan bounced back from a two-point loss at No. 12 Indiana on Thursday night. The Wolverines began the game on a 10-2 run and led 25-19 at halftime. A three-point play by Burke in transition made it 43-26.
