  MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Frank Kaminsky had 25 points on 10-for-15 shooting, Sam Dekker added 20 points and No. 6 Wisconsin became Big Ten regular season champions with a 76-63 victory over Minnesota on Thursday night.

   Nigel Hayes had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Badgers (27-3, 15-2), who had at least a tie for first place already wrapped up last weekend. This is their fourth title under coach Bo Ryan and the first in seven years.

   The Badgers made seven of their first 10 attempts from 3-point range and finished with 18 assists against just nine turnovers.

   Nate Mason had 15 points and Carlos Morris added 11 points for the Gophers (17-13, 6-11), who fell behind by 20 points in the first half and couldn't fully recover.
