Bohannon leads No. 16 Wisconsin over Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jason Bohannon scored 18 points to lead No. 16 Wisconsin to a 62-44 victory over Michigan on Saturday.

Trevon Hughes added 14 points and Jordan Taylor had 13 for the Badgers (18-5, 8-3 Big Ten), who were 9 of 13 from 3-point range in the first half in taking a 40-26 lead.

DeShawn Sims scored 18 points and Manny Harris added 11 for the Wolverines (11-12, 4-7).

Hughes had 3-pointers at the start and end of a 14-0 run midway through the first half that gave Wisconsin a double-digit lead it held the rest of the way.

Bohannan heaved in a 35-foot shot at the halftime buzzer to give the Badgers their 14-point lead.

Michigan managed just one field goal in the first 8 minutes of the second half and never got closer than 12 points the rest of the game as it lost to Wisconsin for the second time this season.

The Wolverines, who expected before the season to make a run at a second straight NCAA tournament appearance, are 1-5 since upsetting Connecticut on Jan. 17.

Wisconsin lost leading scorer Jon Leuer to a wrist injury on Jan. 9, but has gone 6-2 since then.
