Leuer, Taylor lead Wisconsin rout of NC State


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jon Leuer scored 22 points and had 11 rebounds, Jordan Taylor added 21 points and Wisconsin used a 23-0 run straddling halftime to beat North Carolina State 87-48 on Wednesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Wisconsin (5-2) rebounded from a loss to Notre Dame in the finals of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla. on Sunday night with a withering defensive performance, holding the Wolfpack (4-2) scoreless more than 10 minutes and limiting them to 31 percent shooting.

N.C. State didn't help itself much, missing 11 straight shots and committing seven turnovers to fall behind 52-21 before Scott Wood's steal and layup ended the stretch with 16:24 left.

Wisconsin hasn't lost consecutive games since January 2009 and is 70-5 at the Kohl Center against non-conference opponents under coach Bo Ryan.
