(AP) Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker scored 16 points apiece, leading No. 4 Wisconsin to an 81-58 victory over Northwestern on Sunday night.

The Badgers (14-1, 2-0 Big Ten) made 12 3-pointers and shot 53 percent from the field overall. Duje Dukan had 14 points in Wisconsin's seventh consecutive victory, and Nigel Hayes finished with 10 points.

Kaminsky also had 10 rebounds and six assists in his final game at Welsh-Ryan Arena. The senior forward, a native of nearby Lisle, Illinois, played on the same high school team as Northwestern point guard Dave Sobolewski. His mother, Mary, played volleyball for the Wildcats and his uncle, Jim Stack, is the fifth-leading scorer in Northwestern history with 1,583 points.

Dukan also has strong ties to the area. He was a prep star in the Chicago suburb of Deerfield, and his father, Ivica, works in the Chicago Bulls' scouting department.

Tre Demps scored 17 points for Northwestern (10-5, 1-1), which had won four in a row. Freshman Bryant McIntosh finished with 13 points.
