MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin was making its run against Marquette, but Junior Cadougan made sure the Badgers wouldn't make a late comeback.
Cadougan scored 13 of his 18 points in the final 10 minutes and Vander Blue added 17 points to lead Marquette past rival Wisconsin 60-50 on Saturday night.
"He has unbelievable toughness," Marquette coach Buzz Williams said of Cadougan. "It just doesn't appear sexy because he's not a great athlete, he's not a great shooter."
Wisconsin (6-4) was outscored 36-10 in the paint, shot 33 percent and missed 14 of 23 free throws. Coach Bo Ryan said he was shocked his team shot so poorly.
"We had some real wide open looks," he said. "We actually had some good ball reversal, had some good looks, got it inside as I said and just didn't finish, or make the free throws."
Despite shooting poorly most of the game, Wisconsin scored 10 consecutive points to pull within 41-38 midway through the second half. That's when Cadougan took over the game and kept Marquette (6-2) in the lead.
