WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Vincent Edwards scored 21 points and Carsen Edwards added 20, leading No. 3 Purdue to a 78-50 blowout over Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

The Boilermakers (18-2, 7-0 Big Ten) have won 14 straight overall, 19 in a row at home and have matched the best 20-game record in school history. The only other time Purdue did that was 1987-88 when it also won its first seven conference games.

Ethan Happ had 15 points, seven assists and six rebounds to lead the Badgers (9-10, 2-4). Wisconsin has lost three straight - all on the road.

Buffalo wins 6th in row, now 5-0 in MAC

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Nick Perkins matched his season-high with 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting and added six rebounds to lead Buffalo past Northern Illinois 95-67 on Tuesday night for its sixth straight victory.

CJ Massinburg scored 16, Jayvon Graves added 12 points and six boards and Jeremy Harris pitched in with 11 points and four assists for the Bulls (13-5, 5-0 Mid-American Conference). Buffalo is 5-0 in conference play for the first time since the 1997-98 season when it was a member of the defunct Mid-Continent Conference. The Bulls beat the Huskies for a 13th straight time and have won five straight games by double digits, something they hadn't done since the 2003-04 season.
