The Wisconsin Badgers played their fourth straight cupcake and handled the
last just like the previous three.
Junior forward Jared Berggren scored a career-high 21 points to lead the 11th ranked Badgers to a 7-31 win over Missouri-Kansas City at the Kohl Center.
Berggren hit 8 of 9 from the field, including 4 three-pointers. Sophomore Ben Brust added 12 and junior Mike Bruesewitz added 10 points for the Badgers, who shot 52% from the field overall and 48% from three-point range.
The win was no. 246 for coach Bo Ryan at Wisconsin, tying him for second on the all-time wins list with Walter “Doc” Meanwell. Ryan improved to 246-91 in 10-plus seasons at the UW.
Wisconsin next plays in the Chicago Invitational against Bradley on Friday night.
