CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Ben Brust scored 20 points and Wisconsin
overcame a ragged start on Sunday to beat Illinois 74-68.
The Badgers (15-7, 6-3 Big Ten) shot under 30 percent for most
of the first half and combined with the Illini to score 14
points in the game's first eight minutes.
Wisconsin eventually started making shots and Illinois (15-8,

late but trailed by 15 with 5:13 to play.
Frank Kaminsky added 19 for the Badgers and Ryan Evans scored
15. The win keeps the Badgers in fifth place in the Big Ten.
