MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Trevon Hughes scored 19 of his career-high 26 points in the second half and Wisconsin held on to beat No. 6 Duke 73-69 on Wednesday night, snapping the Blue Devils' perfect record in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
The Badgers (5-1) never trailed and got a measure of payback against Duke (6-1) after being routed 82-58 two years ago in Durham, N.C. by ending the Blue Devils' 10-game winning streak in the annual event and the ACC's perfect record as well.
When Ohio State beat Florida State 77-64 in the final game, the Big Ten won the series for the first time, 6-5.
Kyle Singler scored 17 of his career-high 28 points in the first half and Andre Dawkins went 4 of 4 from 3-point range in the second half to finish with 12.
Duke cut Wisconsin's 11-point lead with just over 5 minutes left to 70-69 with 5.7 seconds to play on a tip-in by Singler.
