MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- The last time the Badgers faced a double-digit halftime deficit, they came storming back to pull out a 77-70 win over Arkansas earlier this season.

Wisconsin looked like it was following a similar script Saturday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, but this time the hole was too deep as Marquette came away with a 60-50 win.

The Golden Eagles led wire-to-wire but couldn't shake the Badgers until the closing minutes of the contest. MU led 34-20 at the half after the Badgers turned it over 10 times and shot just 34 percent from the field in the first stanza. 

 Fast Facts
• No Badgers in double-figures for 1st time this season
• UW cut MU's 14-point lead to 3 pts w/ 10:28 to go in game
• Badgers pull in 14 offensive boards

Wisconsin used a 10-0 run on the strength of a pair of 3-pointers from redshirt-freshman George Marshall and senior Jared Berggren to pull within three points, at 41-38 with 10:28 remaining in the game.

After a steal by junior Zach Bohannon during the next possession, the Badgers looked like they had a chance to cut into the deficit even further. However, senior Ryan Evans missed the front end of back-to-back one-and-ones. On the ensuing Marquette possession, Junior Cadougan, who led all scorers with 18 points, finished off an old-fashioned 3-point play.

That put MU ahead by six as the Badgers would play catch up the rest of the game.

Freshman Sam Dekker made his first career start in place of senior Mike Bruesewitz, who was unable to play after suffering a concussion at practice two days prior.

Free throw shooting plagued both teams all night, as Marquette and Wisconsin combined to go 16-for-40 (.400) from the charity stripe.

Berggren and Evans paced the Badgers with nine points each. Dekker and Brust added eight points apiece for Wisconsin. 

The Badgers continue their three-game in-state round-robin by welcoming Green Bay to the Kohl Center on Wed., Dec. 12, at 8 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on BTN.
