Badgers 10 game winning streak stopped at Maryland 59-53
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Dez Wells scored 26 points, and No. 14 Maryland held off fifth-ranked Wisconsin 59-53 Tuesday night, ending the Badgers‘ 10-game winning streak and ruining their bid to clinch a share of the Big Ten regular-season title.
Melo Trimble added 16 points for the second-place Terrapins (23-5, 11-4 Big Ten), who blew an 11-point halftime lead but finished the game with a 12-6 run. Franks Kaminsky led the Badgers with 18 points.
The victory improved Maryland’s home record to 17-1. The Terrapins are 9-0 in games decided by six points or fewer, and they’ve won their last three by a total of 17 points.
Maryland led 55-52 before Trimble made a driving layup and was fouled. He missed the free throw, but after Wisconsin misfired twice on the other end, Trimble iced it with a pair of foul shots. The Badgers (25-3, 13-2) missed nine of their last 10 shots.
