ASHWAUBENON, Wis., Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Frank Kaminsky scored 16 points Saturday but 19th-ranked Wisconsin had to hang on down the stretch to outlast Wisconsin-Green Bay 69-66.

Kaminsky also had eight rebounds for the Badgers (3-0), who struggled late after coming off a 59-53 victory over No. 10 Florida.

It took Josh Gasser's two free throws with 26 seconds left to nail down the triumph.

Sam Dekker contributed 13 points with seven rebounds, and Gasser finished with 11 points and six rebounds for Wisconsin.

Keifer Sykes provided 32 points but missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer for the Phoenix (1-1).
