Dekker's 21 helps keep Badgers streak rolling

Sam Dekker scored 21 points, 13 of them in the first half, and the Badgers held off a pesky Nebraska squad 65-55 Tuesday night in Lincoln.

Dekker equaled the Huskers team scoring total in the first half. He finished 8-for-13 from the floor. Bronson Koenig and Frank Kaminsky tallied 13 points each for Wisconsin (22-2, 10-1 Big Ten), who won despite shooting just 27 percent from three point range for the game.

Terran Petteway scored 21 for Nebraska, including a three to put the Huskers within six in the final minutes, but Bo Ryan's bunch held on for their seventh straight win.
