— Jason Bohannon scored 20 points and Jon Leuer added 16 to lead Wisconsin to a 78-69 win over No. 21 Maryland in the third-place game of the Maui Invitational on Wednesday at the Lahaina Civic Center.

Trevon Hughes scored 14 points for the Badgers (4-1), who made 10 of 22 3-pointers, including four by Bohannon.

Greivis Vasquez led Maryland (4-2) with 18 points. He was 6 for 13 from the floor and 2-for-4 from beyond the arc.

Maryland scored the first seven points before Wisconsin answered with a 16-2 run to take a 16-9 lead with 11:59 left in the first half. Wisconsin stretched the lead to 37-27 at halftime.

Maryland pulled to 51-48 with just more than 10 minutes remaining, but got no closer. Led by Leuer's seven points, Wisconsin went on a 14-5 run to open a 65-53 lead with 5:51 to play. The Badgers led by at least seven the rest of the way.

Bohannon finished 4-for-5 from long range. Hughes went 5 for 17 from the floor, including 3 for 8 on 3s.

Maryland was 5-for-13 on 3-pointers.

Wisconsin left Maui with wins over Maryland and Arizona. Maryland beat only Division II tournament host Chaminade.
