The No. 19 Wisconsin Badgers took care of business inside the Kohl Center on Saturday afternoon, defeating the Penn State Nittany Lions in a close 61-57 victory.
Brevin Pritzl tied a season-high with 17 points while shooting a perfect 5-for-5 from the field—including 4-of-4 from three-point range.
Ethan Happ rebounded from a rough start to contribute 14 points, six rebounds and five assists, while redshirt freshman guard Kobe King scored nine points.
Wisconsin (20-9, 12-6 Big Ten) now has won 12 straight against Penn State (12-17, 5-13), and the Badgers contained the Nittany Lions in not allowing a field goal to be made in the final 8:01 of the contest.
