2014 NCAA Tournament results and bracket: Highlights from Wisconsin vs. American

Wisconsin rolled by American Thursday, nearly erasing all memory of a troublesome slow start.

These highlights were put together by the always-excellent UWBadgers.com video crew.

From Parker's recap:

Junior Traevon Jackson (6-of-8 FG, 2-of-4 3-pt.) led all scorers with 18 points and also chipped in four rebounds and three assists to go along with two turnovers. Dekker joined Jackson and Brust in double figures with 11, including five to jump-start the Badgers' dominant second half.

Brust's four threes give him 224 for his career, just three from tying Tim Locum (1988- '91) as the program's all-time leader and four from holding the record by himself.

"When I'm out there I'm just trying to do things to help the team be successful and I feel like it'll kind of happen by itself if we're playing good basketball," Brust said. "If we keep winning, it'll happen naturally."

Game notes:

  • Wisconsin won its first NCAA tournament game for the 11th time in 13 appearances under Bo Ryan.
  • American's 35 points were the fewest for a UW opponent in the NCAA tournament in the modern era. They were also the fewest since 1941.
  • The 40-point margin of victory was UW's largest in an NCAA tournament game, surpassing the 73-49 win over No. 13 Montana in the second round of the 2012 tournament.
  • Over the last 29:17, Wisconsin outscored American 65-18.
  • Traevon Jackson (18), Ben Brust (17) and Frank Kaminsky (eight) all recorded NCAA tournament career highs in points.
  • Brust now has 224 career three-pointers, three shy of UW's all-time record held by Tim Locum (1988-91).
