MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Darius Johnson-Odom scored 17 points and No. 16 Marquette knocked off in-state rival No. 9 Wisconsin 61-54 on Saturday.

Todd Mayo added 14 points for Marquette (7-0), which snapped the Badgers' 23-game home winning streak. Mayo had a critical late layup and an emphatic game-clinching dunk.

Jordan Taylor scored 13 and tried to lead a late comeback charge for the Badgers (6-2), who have lost two straight.

The Golden Eagles were without starting point guard Junior Cadougan, who was suspended for Saturday's game for a violation of team rules.

Marquette announced shortly before the game that Cadougan would not be in uniform and would miss only Saturday's game for the unspecified violation.
