Sam Dekker scored 22 points and Frank Kaminsky added 16 as No. 5 Wisconsin overcame a late Penn State surge to defeat the Nittany Lions 55-47 Wednesday night.

Dekker and Penn State's D.J. Newbill waged an entertaining scoring battle. Newbill scored 29 points, but the next-highest scorer for Penn State (15-12, 3-11) was Brandon Taylor with seven.

The Badgers (24-2, 12-1), despite shooting 39 percent, were aided by Nigel Hayes' 13 rebounds and nine points.

Wisconsin's 24th victory marked the school's best start in program history.
