Koenig keys run as No. 6 Badgers beat No. 23 Buckeyes 72-48

Posted:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Frank Kaminsky scored 20 points and Bronson Koenig touched off a 16-0 second-half run with two 3-pointers to lead No. 6 Wisconsin to a 72-48 victory over No. 23 Ohio State on Sunday night.

The Badgers (28-3, 16-2) had already clinched the Big Ten regular-season title and top seed in the conference tournament. They tied a school record for league wins while extending the best start in school history.

Koenig had 15 points and Nigel Hayes 10 for Wisconsin, winners of three in a row and 13 of 14.

D'Angelo Russell had 17 points for the Buckeyes (22-9, 11-7), who had a three-game win streak ended. The student section chanted "One more year!" to the freshman -- widely expected to go in the top few picks of the NBA draft -- in the final minute.

The loss was coach Thad Matta's first in March at Ohio State after going 13-0.
