Corpus Christi lead by as many as 17 in the first-half; the Badgers dwindled the lead to 8 at the half before taking the lead for good with about 8 minutes left in the game.
Kammron Taylor led the Badgers with 24 points, all coming in the 2 nd half. The Badgers take on UNLV Sunday in the round of 32.
Brian Butch was cleared to play in Friday's just 2 ½ weeks after dislocating his right elbow. Butch was originally to be out 4-6 weeks. He was in uniform in Friday's win, but not used.
