Wisconsin (15-10 Overall, 8-6 Big Ten)  81
at Nebraska (7-18, 2-12)  64

Final Score


In almost an instant replay of their match-up 3 weeks ago at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin led Nebraska 39-38 at halftime, then unleashed a barrage of made treys in the 2nd half to overcome the Cornhuskers in Lincoln, NE, 81-64.

Badger guard Brad Davison had a career day, converting 8 of 11 shots from beyond the arc (tying the school record for most treys in a game (8), held by Bronson Koenig) and tying his personal best of 30 pts in a game.  Davison also contributed 5 rebounds & 4 assists.  D'Mitrik Trice contributed 5 treys on 6 attempts for 15 points to go along with 5 assists.  Micah Potter put up 15 points off the bench & pulled down 7 boards.  Nate Reuvers had 13 points, giving Bucky 4 players in double figures, while forward Aleem Ford chipped in with 10 rebounds.

For the game, Wisconsin, as a team, shot 49% (31 of 63) from the floor, 48% (15 of 31) from beyond the arc, and 80% (4 of 5) at the charity stripe.

Make shots. Win games.

Imagine if they could get more than two guys hot on any consistent basis.

Nebraska is not very good, so that always helps.  However, I did like the pace of play yesterday.  At least the ball did move ahead off a rebound.  Nebraska's defense was horrible.  The Badgers off the ball movement wasn't good, but because Nebraska is all over the place defensively, guys could just stand.  With Nebraska's inability to defend the post because of their size, they really collapsed and guys could just stand around the perimeter and get shots if the ball moved and that the Badgers did that.  

I still think the lineup of Reuvers and Potter together is to the Badgers advantage.  Yesterday was a tough matchup for it, but moving ahead, having those two together more should lead to some mismatches for either of them.  

Tuesday will be a good gauge of this team.  Purdue is coming in and they battered the Badgers a few weeks ago.  This will be a toughness check.  The crowd should be an electric one and that will help this team a lot.
