Nebraska could never shake the Badgers however, as Happ helped the Badgers chip away the lead and brought Wisconsin within five with just over four minutes to go.
Ethan Happ had a double-double but it wasn't enough as Nebraska beat Wisconsin 63-59 on Tuesday night in Lincoln. Brad Davison added 15 points for the Badgers while Brevin Pritzl contributed 10 points and seven rebounds. After committing just four fouls in the first half, the Badgers were whistled for eight in the first six minutes of the second half.
The Badgers suffered their 2nd straight loss to fall to 9-9 on the season, 2-3 in the Big Ten.
Said junior Isaac Copeland, "It was good and we need more of it to come". "First of all, give credit to Wisconsin".
"Like coach probably told you guys, he just told me to stick with it and my teammates have been great with me, being patient", Tshimanga said.
Tshimanga had a clear size advantage against Wisconsin freshman forward Nate Reuvers on Tuesday night and the Huskers made a point of feeding him early in the game.
But a sudden flurry of turnovers and offensive miscues by the Huskers allowed the Badgers to close the half on a 10-2 run and cut NU's lead to 26-22 going into halftime.
Happ had just four first-half points and didn't get going until the final 6:43, but scored 11 from there to keep UW within arm's reach.
"We have to finish better than that", Palmer said.
"If we don't have Jordy, we might not win the game". "I think we did a good job of that".
After a defensive first half, the Big Red came out strong in the second half and went on a 13-2 run, including a 7-0 spurt to stretch the lead to 13 six minutes into the second half.
Tuesday night in Lincoln, the Huskers did just that.

But Happ's seven turnovers were a crucial reason for UW's shortcomings as well.
Nebraska struggled offensively, shooting just 42.6% from the field and connecting on just two of its 14 three point attempts. His faith in his center paid off, as he finished with a season-high nine points and six rebounds in 18 minutes of action. Jordy Tshimanga also had his best performance of the season by scoring a season-high nine points and grabbing six rebounds.
James Palmer Jr. led the way for Nebraska with 18 points, five rebounds and two assists.
