MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Steven Crowl scored 20 of his career-high 25 points after halftime as No. 15 Wisconsin ended a layoff of over two weeks and won its fifth straight by beating Western Michigan 76-66.

Wisconsin hadn't played since a 78-56 victory over Lehigh on Dec. 15.

A winter storm led to the cancellation of a scheduled Dec. 23 home game with Grambling State.

The Badgers led 29-27 at halftime and outscored Western Michigan 16-4 in the first 4 ½ minutes of the second half.

Wisconsin made its first seven shots from the floor during the second half.
