- Wisconsin won its fourth straight game to improve to 17-10 overall and 10-6 in the Big Ten.
- The Badgers reached 10 conference wins for the 17th time in the last 19 seasons (since 2001-02), the most of any Big Ten team.
- UW is 13-1 at home this season and still have two home games left.
- The Badgers went 11-for-22 from 3-point range (.500), their fourth-consecutive game with double-digit treys (12 vs. Ohio State, 15 at Nebraska, 12 vs. Purdue). The last time UW hit double-digit triples in four straight games came during the 2009-10 season.
- Wisconsin committed just 11 turnovers, its 14th consecutive game with 11 or fewer giveaways.
- The Badgers allowed just seven Rutgers offensive rebounds, with the Scarlet Knights scoring only six second-chance points. Rutgers pulled down 14 offensive boards and turned them into 23 second-chance points in the teams’ first meeting this season, on Dec. 11. (IT’S ALMOST LIKE HAVING MICAH POTTER MAKES A DIFFERENCE, @NCAA!)
- Junior F Micah Potter tallied 18 points and nine rebounds in just 17 minutes. Potter matched his career-high with four triples, going 4-for-5 from three-point range. He is shooting 45.7% from beyond the arc this year.
- Senior G Brevin Pritzl scored 17 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the field, including a career-high five two-point field goals. The Badgers improved to 10-0 when Pritzl scores in double figures this season.
