No. 22 Wisconsin 73, Cornell 40

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 18, 2012
Jared Berggren and Ben Brust each scored 18 points to help No. 22 Wisconsin beat Cornell 73-40 Sunday night. Brust also grabbed 12 rebounds, while Ryan Evans also had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Badgers (2-1). Devin Cherry Cornell (1-3) with 13 points. In losing to No. 10 Florida 74-56 on Wednesday, the Badgers allowed the Gators to shoot 75 percent in the first half and 62 percent for the game. But it was clear from the start Sunday there would be no repeat of that performance. The Big Red started just 1 of 11 and Cornell found itself down 27-8 with just less than 8 minutes to go in the first half. But it was clear from the start Sunday there would be no repeat of that performance. The Big Red started just 1 of 11 and Cornell found itself down 27-8 with just less than 8 minutes to go in the first half. Cornell then went to a trapping defense that had some success in forcing Wisconsin turnovers and picking up the pace of the game as the Big Red cut it to 27-14. But the pressing defense also left Wisconsin shooters open, and the Badgers hit 3-pointers on three straight possessions. A Sam Dekker steal and dunk on the breakaway pushed the lead to 38-16, and Wisconsin largely cruised from there. It was a struggle offensively most of the night for Cornell, which ended up shooting just 26 percent for the game and was outrebounded 54-31. It also could have been worse for the Big Red, but Wisconsin was uncharacteristically sloppy with the ball, committing 16 turnovers. It was only the second meeting between the two schools, the first an 87-69 Cornell win in the 2010 NCAA Tournament. The game was the first of four in seven days for Wisconsin as part of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational. After hosting Presbyterian on Tuesday, the Badgers head to Las Vegas to face No. 15 Creighton.
