MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jon Leuer scored 22 points Tuesday night to lead Wisconsin to an 85-53 win over North Dakota.
Keaton Nankivil added 17 for the Badgers (2-0) in a game that went about as expected in a matchup between a regular Big Ten contender and a team in its third year of the transition to Division I.
An 8-0 run in the middle of the first half put the Badgers up 26-11. They led 41-21 at the break and opened the second half on a 16-2 run to blow the game open.
Milwaukee native Troy Huff scored 21 to lead North Dakota (1-1). His mother, Theresa, is the all-time leading rebounder in Wisconsin women's basketball (1,201) and the fifth-leading scorer (1,879). She is in the school's Athletic Hall of Fame.
