It's jammed up atop Big Ten

Wisconsin's win over Maryland on Sunday leaves the Badgers tied with Purdue for first place with Maryland one game behind. After that, Northwestern, Michigan State, Minnesota and Michigan are all within one game of each other in the loss column.

Big second half propels Wisconsin past Maryland (1:28)

The Badgers' scoring woes has become a major theme entering Sunday's home game against Maryland; Wisconsin had averaged under 40 percent from the field in its last six games, and scored just 117 points in 123 possessions in back-to-back losses to Northwestern and Michigan last week. Sunday wasn't exactly pretty -- UW shot 41.4 percent (including 2 of 12 from 3) and scored just 71 points in 66 trips -- but stout defense and a second-half surge earned them the much-needed win.
