MINNEAPOLIS -- Wisconsin has junior forward Jon Leuer back on the court.

Badgers coach Bo Ryan kept Leuer on the bench at the start of Thursday night's loss to Minnesota, but put him in less than 3 minutes in. Leuer had been out since Jan. 9 because of a broken left wrist. He leads the Badgers with 15.4 points per game.

The 6-foot-10 Leuer is one of Wisconsin's most versatile players, able to score inside and outside. He started the first 16 games before getting hurt, bracing himself after a fall during a game against Purdue. Leuer missed nine games.

Leuer is from Orono, Minn., just outside the Twin Cities.
