Brust Leads Basketball Badgers to Win Over Colgate

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Reserve Ben Brust scored a career-high 17 points to lead No. 14 Wisconsin to a 68-41 win over Colgate on Wednesday night.

Brust, a sophomore guard, scored 13 points in the first half, including four 3-pointers. The Badgers (2-0) were 8 of 14 from beyond the arc as they built a 42-20 halftime lead.

No other player scored in double figures for Wisconsin, which finished the game 10 of 23 from 3-point range. The Badgers hit 15 3s in their season-opening win over Kennesaw State on Saturday.

Wisconsin cooled off in the second half, scoring just two points in the first 8 minutes, but their lead never fell below 18 as Colgate (1-1) shot 34.8 percent from the floor.

John Brandenburg led the Raiders with 11 points.
