No. 10 Badgers nip No. 8 Purdue for share of Big Ten title
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Chucky Hepburn banked in a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left to give No. 10 Wisconsin a 70-67 victory over No. 8 Purdue that clinched the Badgers a share of the Big Ten regular-season title.
Purdue’s Jaden Ivey tied the game by sinking a 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds remaining.
The Badgers worked the ball to Hepburn.
The freshman guard calmly fired the winning shot from in front of Wisconsin’s bench.
A victory Sunday at home against Nebraska would give the Badgers their first outright conference title since 2015.
