Wisconsin's men's basketball team opened its five-game, eight-day Canadian tour with a 95-82 loss against Carleton University in an exhibition Wednesday night. Sophomore forward Sam Dekker scored a team-high 28 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the field, including 21 second-half points. Guard Traevon Jackson added 19 points, center Frank Kaminsky 14 and forward Duje Dukan 10 points off the bench to round out the Badgers in double figures. Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan used a three-guard starting lineup that consisted of Jackson, Ben Brust and Josh Gasser. Dekker and Kaminsky started in the frontcourt. Gasser, playing his first game since suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee 10 months ago, scored two points on 1 of 2 shooting and played 12 minutes. Ryan told reporters prior to the Canada trip that Gasser was expected to play 8-12 minutes per game. Carleton showed why it has won nine of the last 11 Canadian national championships with its scoring ability. The Ravens used the 24-second shot clock to push the pace and established a 51-36 halftime lead. They shot 53.6 percent from the field and drilled 8 of 18 3-point attempts (44.4 percent). Last season, Carleton led all Ontario University Athletics teams in scoring offense, averaging 91.0 points per game. Phillip Scrubb, the two-time Canadian player of the year, scored a game-high 30 points with 12 assists for Carleton. The Ravens improved to 3-0 in exhibition games against NCAA teams, which include victories against Towson and TCU. Wisconsin shot 29 of 62 from the field (46.8 percent) and made 10 of 26 3-pointers (38.5 percent). The 3-point distance in the international game is 22 feet, 1.75 inches, compared to 20 feet, 9 inches in college. Forward Nigel Hayes was the first Wisconsin freshman to check into the game and led all Badgers newcomers in minutes with 13. He finished 0 for 2 from the field and scored no points with three rebounds. Freshman guard Bronson Koenig played seven minutes and was also held scoreless. Carleton and Wisconsin played an extra 10-minute session following the game for younger players on the rosters. Koenig hit a pull-up jumper from the elbow with 4.1 seconds remaining to give the Badgers an 18-17 victory in the extra session. Wisconsin returns to the court on Thursday to play the University of Ottawa. The Ottawa Gee Gees went 15-5 in 2012-13, finishing in a tie for second place in the East Division of the OUA. Ottawa averaged 83.2 points per game, and returns fourth-year guard Johnny Berhanemeskel (18.9 points per game). Box score: Wisconsin: B. Brust 2-8 0-0 4; T. Jackson 7-12 3-4 19; S.
