No. 19 Badgers take down 11th-ranked Purdue


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Senior Jon Leuer scored 24 points and sophomore reserve Ryan Evans made two big plays in the final minute to lead No. 19 Wisconsin to a 66-59 victory over No. 11 Purdue on Tuesday night.

Evans hit a jumper from the free throw line with 50 seconds left to put the Badgers (16-5, 6-3 Big Ten) ahead for good at 60-59. He tied up the Boilermakers' E'Twaun Moore for a jump ball that went to Wisconsin with 25 seconds left.

Evans added a breakaway dunk in the final seconds for the last of his 10 points.

JaJuan Johnson led Purdue (18-5, 7-3) with 23 points -- 17 in the second half -- for his 32nd consecutive game in double figures.
