Wisconsin scored 44 points.... In the first half - the most they've scored in any half all season long as they opened up a 21 point lead at the half and never looked back in taking down Nebraska, 77-44, and more importantly keep the Badgers in the Big Ten title race.
Sam Dekker lead all scores for the Badgers with 19 points. He lead all scorers period in the 1st half with 13 points on 4-5 shooting and added three big time assists. He hit 3-4 from behind the arc and also grabbed a rebound in that half.
Wisconsin has now won three straight games by 20 or more points and seems to be hitting it's stride at just the right time of the season.
Nebraska was paced by Dylan Talley and his game high 21 points, but outside of him Wisconsin kept the Huskers in check.
All this does is set up a tricky battle with a Purdue team that has played well at times, but terrible at others all Big Ten season.
So, let's get right into the player grades and thoughts from to...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
MADISON, Wis. Confidence may be an unquantifiable characteristic, but Sam Dekker's level of self-belief is almost always filled to the brim. Just watch the way he jogs down court after burying a 3-ponter, three fingers held high in the air for the crowd to see what he's accomplished.
There is a fine line between confidence and cocky, of course, and Dekker has straddled...
Freshman Sam Dekker tied his career high with 19 points while Ryan Evans (14) and Ben Brust (13) each reached double figures, as No.17 Wisconsin crushed Nebraska, 77-46, to move into a second-place tie in the Big Ten, one game out of first place with three to go.
MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin forward Mike Bruesewitz is no stranger to the spotlight when it comes to his hairstyle. The red-headed senior has sported a mop-topped fro, worn cornrows and shaved his head to raise money for multiple sclerosis.
And now comes a new look, one seemingly inspired by the fictional character Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld. This week, Bruesewitz's 'do features...
MADISON, Wis. When Ryan Evans gathered the basketball with 2:35 remaining in the first half of Tuesday night's game, a palpable buzz settled across the Kohl Center.The collective hum of Wisconsin's curious fan base suggested everyone had the same question on the brain: Would Evans actually attempt a jump shot from the free-throw line as he suggested days earlier?Sure enough...
It was a MTB kind of party last night on Badgers Power Hour as Andy, Arman, and Nate all joined in the festivities!! We talked Badgers football, hockey, basketball and more.
What kind of seed can Wisconsin basketball earn? Can we really kiss Badgers hockey NCAA tourney hopes goodbye? What the hell is up with Mike Bruesewitz's hair? Oh, and really Bielema, really?
Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans has been horrible shooting free throws this college basketball season. Entering the game with Nebraska he was shooting 40 % from the line. He had made just 51 of 126 attempts at the charity strike. So it was time for Evans to try something else.
Considering it was bottom feeder Nebraska Evans could afford to try a new strategy at the line. So he decided to...
This video is on pretty much every sports blog on the internet, but I thought Ryan Evans and his jump shot free throw needs to be addressed.
Evans is shooting 41% from the line this season. That’s pitiful.
BUT! BUT! BUT!
He’s only shooting 39% from the field. Oh, it gets better – he’s just 2-of-23 from 3-point range.
Evans told the Madison newspaper that he’ll stick with...

In years past, the Wisconsin Badgers hockey team have been the pace setter for attendance numbers in division I college hockey and in the WCHA.
They have the biggest building and they’ve...
After nearly a week off, the #17 ranked Wisconsin Badgers (19-8, 10-4) are back in action Tuesday night to host the Nebraska Huskers (13-14, 4-10) at the Kohl Center. BTN has TV coverage with tip-off at 8:00 PM CT.
These two squads met on January 6th in Lincoln for Wisconsin's first B1G road game of the year. The Badgers and Huskers both debuted their alternate "Bleed...
As another off season of College Football material kicks off, this year marks the third year I’ll throw my hat in the ring and look at a number of topics and categories. In the process I’ll look to do everything from predicting next year’s 25 best teams, identify the games of the year, narrow down the Heisman field, identify those replacing 2012′s stars and ultimately make...
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Ben Brust admitted he didn't crash the offensive boards hard when teammate Sam Dekker had the ball in his hands. He had good reason.
"Every time Sam had the ball, I ran back because I knew it was going in," Brust said after Dekker matched his career high with 19 points Tuesday night to lead No. 17 Wisconsin to a 77-46 victory over Nebraska.
