MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Drew Crawford scored a season-high 30 points, JerShon Cobb added all 10 of his points in the second half and Northwestern upset cold-shooting No. 14 Wisconsin 65-56 on Wednesday night.

It was Northwestern's first win over the Badgers in Madison since 1996.

The smooth Crawford glided around the court for tough shots - none harder than a 3 off a curl with Wisconsin's Josh Gasser's hand in his face to give Northwestern (11-11, 4-5 Big Ten) a 13-point lead.

Wisconsin (17-4, 4-4) turned up the pressure late to get within six with 41 seconds left. But Traevon Jackson lost the ball on a drive with 23 seconds left to seal the Badgers' fate.

Ben Brust's 21 points led Wisconsin, which lost for the fourth time in five games.
