Badgers Pick Up 20th Win of Season

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Josh Gasser scored 15 points and No. 15 Wisconsin held off Penn State 65-55 on Sunday.

Jared Berggren added 13 points, and Ryan Evans and Jordan Taylor scored 11 each for the Badgers (20-7, 9-5 Big Ten), who have won eight of their last 10 games and maintained their grip on fourth place in the conference.

Tim Frazier scored 20 points for the Nittany Lions (12-16, 4-11), who used a 17-2 run in the second half to cut the lead to 51-46 with 5:49 remaining. That's as close as it would get, as Berggren hit a pair of 3-pointers to help Wisconsin close with a 14-9 run.

Penn State, which came in riding its first two-game win streak since Dec. 18-21, has not won in Madison since 1995, a span of 15 games.
