Marquette's poor shooting has given Wisconsin a 25-15 lead at the end of the first half.

The Golden Eagles have been mired in two separate scoring droughts, lasting 7 minutes and nearly 6 minutes respectively. Matt Carlino leads the Golden Eagles with 8 points, but he's also responsible for half of Marquette's 6 turnovers, none of which led to Wisconsin second-half points. Steve Taylor is 2-for-3 from the field, but the Badgers have done an excellent job of shutting MU down on defense and making them work to get off a clean shot.

Frank Kaminsky is leading the way for Wiscosin with 8 points. Kaminsky is shooting a perfect 2-for-2 on the floor and 4-4 from the line. Josh Gasser has added two 3's for the Badgers, while Nigel Hayes has 5 points, 3 boards and 3 assists.

Marquette is losing the rebounding battle 17-10, but have forced 7 Badger turnovers.

Enjoy the second half!
