|#18 Wisconsin Beats Michigan
|MADISON, Wis. (AP) --Trevon Hughes and Rob Wilson led a late scoring surge, powering No. 18 Wisconsin past Michigan 54-48 Wednesday night.
Hughes scored 20 points and Wilson added a career-high 13 off the bench for the Badgers (15-4, 5-2 Big Ten), who won despite shooting 4 of 24 from 3-point range.
DeShawn Sims scored 23 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for the Wolverines (10-8, 3-3), who were coming off a victory over then-No. 15 Connecticut on Sunday.
Things don't get much easier from here for the Wolverines, who play at No. 13 Purdue, then get No. 6 Michigan State at home.
