No. 25 Wisconsin has fifth triumph, 67-46

The Badgers committed only six turnovers Saturday in a dominating performance.


MADISON, Wis. — Trevon Hughes scored 16 points and Joe Krabbenhoft added 12 points and 10 rebounds, as No. 25 Wisconsin beat Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Saturday, 67-46.

Earlier this week, Wisconsin (5-1) was plagued by 22 turnovers in dropping its first game of the season against No. 2 Connecticut.

But the Badgers gave up the ball just six times Saturday in a dominating performance.

The Panthers (3-4) played without senior guard Ricky Franklin, who was suspended for the game after he was arrested early Thursday for operating while intoxicated.

Tony Meier and Deonte Roberts led the Panthers with 11 points each.

Butler 75, Evansville 59

INDIANAPOLIS — Shelvin Mack scored 18 points, making 8 of 11 shots, including both of his 3-point tries, to lead Butler (5-0). Gordon Hayward and Zach Hahn scored 12 points and Matt Howard had 11 points and four blocks for the Bulldogs. Shy Ely led Evansville (3-1) with 12 points.

Loyola of Chicago 58, Holy Cross 53.

CHICAGO — J.R. Blount and Darrin Williams combined for four free throws in the final 16 seconds for Loyola. Blount led the scoring with 19 points, including seven in the final six minutes to protect the Ramblers’ victory. Colin Cunningham and Greg McCarthy led Holy Cross (2-4) with 13 points apiece.

Detroit 62, Saint Louis 57

DETROIT — Woody Payne scored a career-best 17 points and made a critical defensive play for Detroit. Detroit led 60-57 with less than five seconds to play when Payne blocked Kevin Lisch’s 3-pointer to teammate Xavier Keeling, who was fouled and made both free throws to put the game away. Keeling had a career-high 21 points and nine rebounds for Detroit (2-3).
