MADISON, WI (WHBL) - The Wisconsin men's basketball team ended a 14-game home winning streak, falling to Northwestern Wednesday night, 65-56. It was the fourth loss in the last five games for the 14th-ranked Badgers, while the Wildcats won for the first time at the Kohl Center in 14 tries. Wisconsin led by one after a tight first half. Northwestern went on a game-deciding 15-2 run, which gave the Wildcats a 12-point advantage with 5:30 left. The Badgers were down by 10 with just over a minute to play when Ben Brust tried taking over. He scored six points down the stretch, but it wasn't enough as Wisconsin could not get within six in the final minute. Chris Collins, Northwestern's first-year coach, called it a tremendous win for his program because he knows how tough it is to win in Madison. The Wildcats had not won there since 1996. Drew Crawford had 30 points and eight rebounds, as Northwestern improved to 4-5 in the Big Ten and 11-11 overall. Brust scored 21 for Wisconsin, which dropped to 4-4 in the Big Ten and 17-4 overall. The Badgers will host Ohio State on Saturday.
