Wisconsin rips Nebraska-Omaha 86-40

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin guard Ben Brust scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Wisconsin over Nebraska-Omaha 86-40 on Tuesday night.

Brust was one of five Badgers (6-3) in double figures. Ryan Evans had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds, while Jared Berggren scored 13, Frank Kaminsky had 11 and Sam Dekker chipped in with 10.

Justin Simmons led Nebraska-Omaha (2-8) with 12 points.

Trailing just 6-5 early in the first half, it was largely downhill from there for the Mavericks. Wisconsin finished the half on a 36-7 run, punctuated by Traevon Jackson's steal and shot at the buzzer to put Wisconsin up 42-13.

The Mavericks had a miserable first half, shooting 22 percent from the floor, including 0 of 5 from 3-point range, while committing 10 turnovers.
