MADISON, Wisc. (AP) - Aleem Ford scored a career-high 19 points and Wisconsin held off a late charge from Purdue to win 69-65.

Wisconsin built a lead in the second half with strong shooting behind the 3-point arc. But it secured the win over Purdue by hitting all eight free throws it took over the final 28 seconds.

Ford 3 put the Badgers up 51-38 midway through the second half, and Noel Eastern’s foul on the next Purdue possession put Wisconsin into the bonus.

Trevion Williams scored 17 and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Purdue.
