Keaton Nankivil has scored in double figures in each of the last three games (averaging 12.7 ppg over that stretch). He has never had four straight games in double digits, something he can accomplish when Wisconsin hosts Coppin State Thursday. That's just one of the many signs that the senior is starting to find a groove for the Badgers.

The last time junior Keaton Nankivil visited the state of Indiana, he tied a school record with seven three-pointers. He wasn't that productive against the Hoosiers, but Nankivil found his shooting touch to give No.17 Wisconsin a needed lift in a 78-46 victory Thursday.

Tying a school record with seven three-pointers, Nankivil's hot shooting nearly single-handedly carried Wisconsin to a big road win before falling in the final seconds.
