The #22 Badgers bounced back from their tough road loss, and improved to 2-1 on the season after beating the Cornell Big Red 73-40. After an embarrassing performance on Wednesday's lost to Florida- in which the Gators shot 62% from the field- the Wisconsin defense was suffocating tonight, allowing Cornell to shoot just 26%. It wasn't all defense though. Thanks to a threesome of great performances from Ben Brust, Jared Berggren and Ryan Evans, the Badgers put up 73 points, including 42 in the first half. The Badgers shot a solid 40.3% from the field in the game. Their three-point shooting also struggled a bit, only getting 6 out of 22 to fall for 27.3%. That needs to change quickly with the amount of threes they're taking. Brust recorded his second double-double of the season, scoring a game high 18 points, grabbing 12 rebounds and dishing out 4 assists. He also made 2 three pointers and had only 1 turnover. Brust has been a man on a mission on the boards recently, and Jared Berggren jokingly said this about Brusts' rebounding: "I'm just sick of it, cause he's stealing all of my stats". Berggren also had 18 points, also adding 7 rebounds. The "Ice Berg" showed us an array of moves and ways to score in the paint, showing that he can be a solid offensive option down low. Berg continued his defensive dominance, swatting away 4 shots today. Ryan Evans recorded his third career double double, scoring 12 points on 5-12 shooting and grabbing 10 boards. Evans also had a big day on the offensive end, recording three blocks, all in the first half. The Badger big man duo of Evans and Berggren combined for 30 points, 17 rebounds, and 7 blocks tonight. The Badgers host the 0-3 Presbyterian Blue Hose in their next game, Tuesday at Kohl Center, 7 PM CT. Also: Watch the play of the game courtesy of SLAM DEKKER.
