MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Zach Edey had 17 points and 19 rebounds as No. 5 Purdue outlasted Wisconsin 63-61.
Purdue clinched the Big Ten regular-season title outright earlier in the day when Illinois beat Michigan in double-overtime. But there was still plenty at stake in this game as Purdue sought to make its case for an overall No. 1 seed.
The Boilermakers are 25-5. Wisconsin was trying to boost its postseason credentials.
