MADISON, Wis. -- During Wisconsin's Big Ten clash with Purdue on Tuesday evening, the Kohl Center faithful received more than just the entertainment associated with a college basketball game.

At the under-16 minute media timeout of the game between the Badgers and Boilermakers, members of the football program and the UW dance team performed a routine on the court.

Those participating in the extravaganza included the following:

  • Defensive end Matt Henningsen and Isaiahh Loudermilk
  • Safeties Collin Wilder and Tyler Mais
  • Linebackers Maema Njongmeta, Marty Strey and Jacob Heyroth
  • Quarterback Graham Mertz
  • Offensive linemen Tyler Beach, Kayden Lyles and Aaron Vopal
  • Punter/holder Connor Allen
  • Long snapper Adam Bay
  • Wide receiver/athlete Chimere Dike
  • Tight end Hayden Rucci
  • Punter Conor Schlichting

The Wisconsin Badgers' men's basketball team went on to achieve a regular season split against the Purdue Boilermakers on Tuesday. After clinging to a late whittled lead, Greg Gard's program eventually ended the night with a 69-65 win.

Four players scored in double figures for Wisconsin (16-10 overall, 9-6 Big Ten), led by a career night by redshirt junior Aleem Ford (19 points, five made three-pointers).
