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 tonight's game...
