Badgers basketball team coasts to easy win

by

MADISON (WSAU)   The Wisconsin men’s basketball team pounded Presbyterian last night, 88-to-43 in Madison. It was the fourth straight blow-out loss for the South Carolina school, after losing its first three games by an average of 25 points.

The Badgers out-shot Presbyterian 52-to-36 percent, and they led by as many as 50 in the second half with the help of 16 three-pointers on the night. Guard Ben Brust led Wisconsin with 20 points and 12 rebounds. It was his third double-double in a four-game stretch – and the last Badger to achieve that was Mike Wilkinson back in 2005.

Wisconsin committed only six turnovers, as it improved to 3-and-1.

Khalid Mutakabbir scored 14 for Presbyterian, which was coming off a 29-point loss last week to 14th-ranked Creighton. The Badgers will play Creighton on Friday as part of the Las Vegas Invitational.
