Josh Gasser scored 12 points on four 3-pointers, 7-footer Frank Kaminsky added 15 points and 10 rebounds and No. 2 Wisconsin managed a 49-38 win Saturday over Marquette.

The Badgers (8-1) shot 32 percent while contending with a 2-3 zone defense by the undersized Golden Eagles, who don't have a starter taller than 6-foot-7.

But Wisconsin looked sloppy at times in the second half, and Marquette (4-4) chipped away at a 10-point halftime deficit. Two foul shots by Sandy Cohen III with 8:57 left cut the lead to 35-33 to get upset-minded fans cheering at the Bradley Center.

Gasser steadied Wisconsin with a 3 on the next trip down the floor, and the Badgers fended off Marquette for their second straight victory in the in-state rivalry.
