Frank Kaminsky scored a game-high 25 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and blocked six shots to lead the Wisconsin Badgers to a 68-56 win over Buffalo in the final tune up for the start of Big Ten Conference play.
It’s the fifth straight win for the Badgers (12-1), who will open the Big Ten season Wednesday at the Kohl Center.
The Bulls (7-3) had the early advantage and led 27-26 at halftime. The Badgers missed 13 of 14 shots from the field during a first half stretch to contribute to the halftime deficit.
While Frank Kaminsky shot 50% from the field (5-10) in the first half, the rest of his teammates hit just 5 of 22 (22.7%).
But the Badgers got back on track in the second half, going on an early 15-0 run. Sam Dekker scored all 13 of his points in the second half and pulled down six rebounds in the win.
