End of the First Half
The officials clearly think they are the stars of this game and should be suspended on their clear disregard for the game after they review the celebration by Wilson and call an intentional foul. Wilson raised his arm in celebration after making the big shot and Hummel happened to be there, you see this all the time and the officials thought an innocent celebration that they needed to look at a replay of for 3 minutes was an intentional foul. The Badgers star of the half is Jordan Taylor who has 13 points most off of dribble penetration. Jon Leuer has had an awful game from the field going 0-8 from the field, he might have hurt his hand early in the game though on a fall to the floor. Trevon Hughes went out of the game with 2 fouls after only 7 minutes of play, he was hot early getting the Badgers out to an 8-0 lead but after he left the Badgers offense left until Taylor took the game over. The Badgers got a huge boost from their bench with Hughes and Nankivil out of much of the half, Mike B. in particular gave them a huge boost with 5 rebound and they should leave him in because they need the boards. The Badgers shot 33% from the field and 30% from three in the half. Purdue has been getting easy shots in this game and is shooting 43%, Purdue would be winning if they shot over 56% from the free throw line.
