MADISON, Wisc. (AP) Micah Potter missed Wisconsin’s December loss to Rutgers.
He made sure to leave an impression on the Scarlet Knights Sunday, coming off the bench to score 18 points and grab nine rebounds in a 79-71 Wisconsin win.
With the Ohio State transfer having to out that Dec. 11 game at Rutgers, the Badgers (17-10, 10-6 Big Ten) lost the rebounding battle 40-26. But with the 6-foot-10 forward in the lineup, it gave Wisconsin another big to throw at a physical Rutgers lineup. And Potter hitting 4-of-5 3-point attempts forced Rutgers to extend its defense.
