MADISON, WI (WHBL) - The Wisconsin men's basketball team improved to 11-0 Wednesday night after pounding U-W Milwaukee 78-52 in Madison. The fourth-ranked Badgers did most of their damage in the first half, as they went up by 20 at the break and sailed from there. Ben Brust made his first six shots, four from three-point range, and he ended up 18 points on the night. Wisconsin hit 9 of 13 from downtown in the first half, but only hit 1 of 13 from beyond-the-arc in the second half. Still, the Badgers shot 51-percent for the game, and out-rebounded U-W-M 35-26. The Panthers committed 19 turnovers, which the Badgers turned into 28 points. Matt Tiby scored 19 and Kyle Kelm had 17 for U-W Milwaukee, which fell to 9-3 overall and 1-30 lifetime against the Badgers. Frank Kaminsky scored 16 for Wisconsin. Sam Dekker had 12 points, eight rebounds, and a season-high six assists, as the Badgers matched the school's record start of 11-0 set by coach Stu Jackson's team in 1993 and '94. The Badgers can break that mark on Saturday with a home win over Eastern Kentucky.
