MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Micah Potter had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 6 Wisconsin to a 71-59 victory over No. 21 Minnesota. The Gophers (9-2, 2-2 Big Ten) scored a season-low 22 points in the first half with a brutal shooting performance and before the Badgers (9-2, 3-1) opened the second half on a 16-5 run. Potter added the exclamation point with dunk off a pick-and-roll from D’Mitrik Trice that put Wisconsin up 45-27. Wisconsin at one point pushed the lead to 26 and Minnesota didn’t get the deficit under 15 points until the final minute.
