EVANSTON, Ill. -- Here's a historical perspective of University of Wisconsin men's basketball team's Josh Gasser's triple-double -- he had 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists -- during the Badgers' 78-46 win over Northwestern at Welsh-Ryan Arena here Sunday:

He is the first player to accomplish the feat in the 113-year history of the UW basketball program.

He is the first Big Ten Conference freshman to record an official triple-double. Michigan State's Earvin Johnson had 11 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists vs. Detroit on Dec. 21, 1977 before assists were an official stat.

He is the first Big Ten player to record a triple-double in conference play since Jan. 13, 2001. (Sergio McClain, Illinois, 10 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists vs. Michigan).

He is the first freshman to record a triple-double in NCAA Division I this year, the 11th overall in Division I and just the fifth from a major conference.
