MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Ben Brust and Josh Gasser scored 14 points apiece, and No. 15 Wisconsin tied a team record with 15 3-pointers to easily dispatch Kennesaw State 85-31 on Saturday. Ryan Evans had 13 points, and Jared Berggren and preseason All-American Jordan Taylor each added 11 for the Badgers, who made seven of their first 10 attempts from beyond the arc. Mike Bruesewitz hit consecutive 3-pointers to cap a 16-0 run for the Badgers (1-0), who took control right from the start after Spencer Dixon banked in a 3 on Kennesaw's first possession. Berggren and Brust also added 3-pointers in the stretch. Brust had three of his four 3s in the first half, and eight different players connected from long range for the Badgers, who also hit 15 3-pointers in 1992 and again in 94. The Badgers built a 41-8 halftime lead while holding the Owls (0-1) to just 13 percent (3 of 23) shooting from the field in the first half. Kennesaw State went scoreless for nearly eight minutes after Dixon's 3-pointer and went without a field goal for another 11:07 before Dixon hit a jumper just before the end of the half. Berggren had back-to-back dunks to help the Badgers open the second half with a 17-2 run before Markeith Cummings scored three straight baskets to give Kennesaw State field goals on consecutive possessions for the first time all game. Cummings led Kennesaw State with 18 points, all but three in the second half. Gasser was 4 of 4 from the field, all on 3-pointers. He hit back-to-back 3s in the second half in the middle of a 21-4 Wisconsin spurt after Cummings' three straight buckets had made it 58-17. The Badgers, who allowed their fewest points since 1996, shot 58 percent overall and outrebounded the Owls 41-20.
