Evans, Taylor lead Wisconsin past Montana 73-49



 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- Rob Evans scored 18 points and Jordan Taylor added 17 points and six assists for Wisconsin, which ended Montana's school record 14-game winning streak with a 73-49 win over the Grizzlies on Thursday.

   The fourth-seeded Badgers (25-9) improved to 10-1 in their NCAA tournament openers under Bo Ryan, the winningest coach in the program's history.

   Wisconsin will face the Vanderbilt-Harvard winner in the next round of the East Regional on Saturday at the Pit.

   Art Steward's 18 points led the Grizzles (25-7), who were familiar with the Badgers' style because one of their assistants, Freddie Owens, played at Wisconsin from 2001-04. His inside information couldn't help the Grizzlies pull off the upset.
