Piscataway, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Myles Mack had 21 points, Kadeem Jack scored 20 and Rutgers shocked No. 4 Wisconsin 67-62 on Sunday.
It was the first win over a top-five team in Rutgers history.
The Scarlet Knights (10-7, 2-2 Big Ten) outscored the short-handed Badgers (15-2, 3-1) by a 44-27 margin in the second half for the program's first win over a ranked team in more than two years.
Wisconsin played without leading scorer Frank Kaminsky because of a concussion and finished the game without point guard Traevon Jackson, who appeared to suffer an injury when he landed on Mack's foot while trying to block a 3-point shot in the second half.
In their absence, Nigel Hayes and Sam Dekker scored 15 points each to lead the Badgers and Bronson Keonig had 12.
Mack scored 19 of his 21 points in the second half, knocking down four of his six 3-point attempts. All four came in the first 7:41 of the half, helping the Scarlet Knights trim a 13-point deficit eventually to one.
"They got it going with the 3s," said Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan. "There's no question when Mack hit that string there it energized them. I think they fed off that."
Mack's free throws with 7:19 remaining gave the Scarlet Knights their first lead, and they remained in front the rest of the way, going up by as many as seven.
Before Sunday, the highest-ranked team Rutgers had ever beaten was No. 6 West Virginia on Feb. 27, 1982.
"We've suffered," said Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan, whose team shot better than 66 percent in the second half, "and I'm just happy for everybody."
The Badgers shot 37.5 percent in second half and had an eight-game winning streak snapped since losing to Duke on Dec. 3.
